Blueberry pie. And yes, I made it myself.

Happy Thanksgiving, Americans!

I hope everyone gets to be with family, eat too much, and fall asleep on the couch.  And above all, I hope everyone is happy.

Of course, not everyone can be with family, not everyone has enough to eat, and not everyone has a home, much less a couch, which makes the falling asleep part hard.  Thanksgiving is all about feeling grateful for our own good fortune, however much or little we might enjoy; but the way I see it, part of feeling grateful is also feeling obligated to extend our good fortune to others.  So this Thanksgiving, if you can afford it, share your meal with someone who needs a friend; send some food to someone who could use a little more to eat; support an organization that provides shelter for those who need a place to stay.  And if you’re on the receiving end of any of that, share a smile with your new friends.
