What are we thankful for?
Hanging out at Ordinary Times often feels like sitting down for a holiday feast with family: We all have a little too much wine, we talk with our mouths full, and by the end of the evening we’re shouting at one another about politics, religion, and the only proper and real way to barbecue.
I though I’d take that metaphor one step further this year. So I’m putting up this thread and asking everyone passing through over the next few days to mention what they’re thankful for this year. (Have we ever done this? I can’t remember if we have or not.)
Feel free to speak up, even — especially! — if you’ve never left a comment before.
I’ll start: A healthy and wonderful family here and elsewhere, the opportunity to have spent this entire past year doing what I love, the Seahawks (first year ever I got say that), Michael Chabon and Kazou Ishiguro, Wynton Marsalis, a week of rare sunshine leading up to Turkey Day, Breaking Bad not blowing it in its last season, and all my friends, scattered seemingly everywhere — and that includes all of you folks.
What about all of you?
