The light is always on for family and friends. It’s on for you, too, dear reader, with a big thank you for stopping by.
If you were here last year, you might remember Mary Chapin Carpenter’s sweet “Thanksgiving Song”. It’s definitely worth a re-visit — a chance to hum along and recall the meaning of this old-fashioned (in a good way) day of celebration.
Thanksgiving is one of the last holidays to succumb to pressures of the advertising and shopping machine. But now, even Thanksgiving is up for grabs. I, for one, am holding out — steadfast in my resolve to stay away from the mall. I’m staying home. Preserving life and limb. Eating pumpkin pie and listening to nice music (on soon-to-be-obsolete equipment).
Does Thanksgiving have to change? I hope not. May yours be a happy one, however you choose to spend it.
