Separatists (pilgrims) signing the Mayflower Compact, 1620
Just a brief word of thanks to you. I appreciate you coming by my little corner of the Web from time to time. I'm grateful for your interest in our shared pastime and passion.
To everyone who is celebrating the holiday today, happy Thanksgiving. Today is a day to turn the usual human impulse around...instead of thinking about what's wrong in the world or our lives, to think about what's right; instead of thinking about the things we don't have, to think about all the things we do; instead of taking our advantages and blessings for granted, to be conscious of them and feel grateful. Today is a day to be mindful of our gifts, of the people living and dead and as yet unmet whom we may be honored to know or love, of the joys we've been given to experience, and of the hopeful possibilities that might await us in the future.
Enjoy every minute. And may God, or your higher power, or Consciousness, or the Universe, or the mysterious life-force bless and keep you and yours. Peace and prosperity to you and your family and every living thing you hold in your heart, in this and every season.
In friendship and conviviality,
Waukesha, Wisconsin, U.S.A.
