Happy Thanksgiving 27 November 2009

Posted by magicdufflepud in Uncategorized.

Happy Thanksgiving from 9300′, where everyone’s scratching his head at the “High Altitude” directions on the box of stuffing. I hope this works.

Even after a relatively upsetting year, what with the job search and the economy and all, finding reasons to give thanks still seems pretty easy: thanks for a job; thanks for Colorado; thanks for friends; thanks for my skis, mountains and gravity. And while at the same time it’s so easy to slip into the maudlin, on today of all days that’s okay. In America, even the uncertainty of ski bumming beats the chronic pain of the more than 1,000,000,000 people around the global living from hand to mouth. Thanks, evolution/god, for cognitive dissonance.

Anyway, I hope that all of you at lower and warmers climes have enjoyed yourselves today. I hope you’ve found come together in that way that occurs just once a year, to celebrate family and friends. Ignore the banality of it and revel in the joy of relationships, shared times and good food.
