Thanksgiving 2013

Once again in the USA, we pause on the fourth Thursday of November to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday. Families and friends gather, parades and football games preempt normal daytime television, large amounts of food are prepared and consumed, drowsiness ensues – and Turkeys throughout the land are relieved they’re not part of the feast.

“About 12 pounds, why do you ask?”   A female wild turkey watches me warily at Central Winds Park in Winter Springs

But seriously, this year especially I’m grateful for so many wonderful things in my life.  I hope all of you are as blessed as I am or even more so.   Spend a few moments contemplating the good things in your own life.  Pause and savor them.  Be thankful.  Cherish your family and friends.

And then – strive even harder to be one of the things that your family and friends are so grateful for.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go spend time with your family and friends!

The River

The river carries us serenely through a forest on a continuous mirror, showing us symmetries and compositions created out of chaos in scenes invisible from the shore. And us? We delight and choose which moments to save.
