Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  I know the holiday is not really a thing outside the U.S. and Canada (and in Canada it happened a month ago), but there’s never a bad time to be grateful for the good things in our lives, especially when the bad things threaten to overwhelm us.

Thank you especially to Steve Whitmire, for teaching us (back in 1987) that turkeys are selfish, ungrateful bastards and that we should eat them, because if we don’t, they will conspire to murder Big Bird. 😉

Seriously, though…

Steve, I told you once that sometimes I get hung up thinking about what I’m not rather than what I am.  Not to go all Nickelback on you, but–whether you’re aware of it or not–by your work, by your blog, and just by being the person that you are, you remind me of who and what I am:  

I am a writer.  I am a scholar.  I am a creative person who can’t NOT be creative.

Thank you for the reminder.  Thank you for everything. 

Happy Thanksgiving to you. 🙂
