Happy Thanksgiving

   Happy Thanksgiving to All. It is good to give thanks. On this cozy, rainy Tuesday as I start my preparations, I look forward to grandchildren, family, cheer and good food on Thursday.  Though the origins of the holiday are not what we were taught in school, the way it is celebrated now, in modern America, is a beautiful thing. May all of the diverse cultures which make up our America lend their own food and traditions to the holiday. Let us all sit around the table together and in the spirit of the holiday honor a day of gratitude, of justice and freedom, happiness too, for us all. And - hey, as I wrote this the clouds parted, the sun shone through and parts of the sky turned blue, even though it is still raining. A metaphor for what will be a beautiful holiday!
