On this Thanksgiving I have much to be grateful for. For one thing, I have returned to the rural Midwestern home of my birth. I am celebrating the holiday with a large extended family in traditional Thanksgiving stye. I am also able to experience the stunning beauty of November in the North Woods. Alas, I would be enjoying these woods much more if it wasn’t deer hunting season. Thus, when enjoying the outdoors, I am confined to certain hunting restricted parks.
I have been watching two impressive films on Showtime – both series. One: Spector about the life of Phil Spector and Gossip, a series on the disturbing, yet interesting history of tabloid journalism.
What I really have to be grateful for this Thanksgiving is the ability to hike. I have been hiking much further in recent days. It appears that my knee may be still healing after all this time.
