Just wanted to wish everyone out there happy thanksgiving!

It’s been a strange year. New jobs and broken bones for me. Other various and sundry medical issues for other people.

In the end, all of you who happen to be reading this are alive. Be thankful for that. Be thankful for all of what you have. Be thankful for the struggles because the alternative is worse. (Ed: insert a “that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” somewhere)

For all its problems and occupations we live in the best country in the world (IMHO). We’re not really doing that bad. Of course we can do better… but I’m not focusing on that at the moment.

I hope you all spent time with friends and/or family today and looked around — to notice that for all our problems, we’re lucky in the grand scheme of things.

:-)
