Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving TurkeyThis blog gives me a venue to express my opinions, observations, convictions, &c. I don’t use it to talk about particulars of my private life (I do that elsewhere). I don’t use it to attack people (there’s plenty of other sites for that…you know who you are!). I don’t use it to make money (that’s never been a motivating force for me). I don’t use it to draw attention to myself (zero subscribers and counting). This is simply a place to put into words “things that matter to Dennis”.

Today is Thanksgiving. We’re supposed to use this day to celebrate the fall harvest (Silver Queen corn and pumpkins maybe, everything else comes from Mexico) and express gratitude for all the good things that make our lives tolerable (I think I’m supposed to say “enjoyable”…).┬áThe past couple years have been particularly hard but because of close friends and family (I toyed with the order there, but had to settle on one), I’m emerging from a trying and turbulent time. I’m thankful to them for that. I don’t know where I’d be if it wasn’t for the people around me (none of which read my blog apparently! damn them).

“We are here on earth to do good for others. What the others are here for, I don’t know.” – W. H. Auden
