I am thankful for the fact that I am still alive, and healthy, and able to enjoy my life.
I am thankful for my family and my friends and those who have touched my life in so many wonderful ways.
I am grateful for the privilege to live a life free from most wants, from strife, and from pain, full of so much that many go without.
I am grateful for wine and food, and the world’s infinite bounty of deliciousness that I have the great fortune in which to partake.
I am thankful for the opportunity to express myself and feed my own creativity and spirit by writing about things I am passionate about.
And finally I am thankful to you, dear readers, for continuing to enjoy, interact, and share my writing after all these years.
I wish you Americans the happiest of Thanksgiving holidays, and for the rest of you around the world, I hope you find a moment soon, with a glass of wine in hand, to appreciate all that you might be blessed with in this life.
