happy thanksgiving

There is a lot to be thankful for, people. How about the fall leaves, turning orange and red and yellow as they reach the end of this season's cycle? Or the way a child smiles at you from a stroller, as you walk by, going about your daily business?
The birds and squirrels are stocking up for the coming winter, the morning air is cool and renewing, there are no secret police coming to my door late at night because I have publicly criticized the government. (yet.)
We can choose where we work, where we live, and who we want to spend time with. (except for that asshole at work you must withstand)
We have food in our bellies, most of us have someone who we love and who love us, and everyone has at least one friend they can rely on for most anything.
There is some shit to be thankful for.
Unless you are a turkey.
