Oh, and Also: I’m Doing a Thanksgiving Advent Calendar Thingie This Month
By which I mean that every day of November through Thanksgiving (in the US), I’ll be writing a bit on something I’m thankful for. The reason? Mostly because I think the idea of Thanksgiving — of taking time to really think about things you are thankful for — is a fine one, and because I think it’s becoming increasingly the late in the year holiday we sort of gloss over between Halloween and Christmas, and I’d like to focus on it a little more than usual this year. And anyway I have a lot of things to be thankful for, and I suspect, in spite of 2011 generally being a spectacularly crappy year, so do you. It’s worth giving some time to.
So, that’s the plan: one thing I’m thankful for, every day, through Thanksgiving. Note I am traveling some during the month so some of these will be shorter (and later) than others. But they’ll be there. Note also that not everything will be deep and important. I’m thankful for a number of trivial things as well as big things. I suspect most people are.
