On 26 November 2020, Thanksgiving will be celebrated in the United States of America. Despite and perhaps because of the widening pandemic, some have felt the desperate need to travel and visit friends and family by airplane, automobile, train, or bus. Many will make telephone calls, or use Skype, Zoom or other formats, as well as social media, to connect. I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for keeping in touch and for reading and commenting on my blog this year. I am extremely thankful for friends and family, having a roof over my head and food to eat, a beautiful planet on which to live, laughter and love, for the ability to move and to read, and for art and work.
Fred was kind enough to allow me to use his rug-in-progress to highlight squash - a New World food - that was in existence long before the first Thanksgiving in America.
We noticed these signs recently and I must applaud personnel at Santa Fe County for planting them.
The sign above is perfect - In bad times, a good face. Be brave and weather the storm.
Have a safe and fine Thanksgiving. We look forward to next year when we can share the joy of in-person celebrations with many of you. Thanks to Char, Barbara, Lisa, Paule, Steve, Wayne, Terry T., Jean and Sam, Karla, Ingrid, Debra, and Victoria for your words this week.
until next Monday,
