Thanksgiving, after all
This Thanksgiving, rather than think turkey, (i.e. a mass-slaughter time for animal lovers) pumpkin, (why can’t it be Apple or chocolate, say the real dessert fiends) family, (for better and worse, as a plethora of articles on depression have come to flood the media starting holiday season) or national commemoration (as revisionist historians remind us, this day commemorates colonizing) I would like to cast off the darkness for once, and focus on gratitude.
“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.”

Giving thanks, that’s all. The rest is noise.
