Let it be known
Hello everyone, fans, and friends alike, let it be known, that thinking of you is a welcome respite. However, as I sit here, at my computer typing this note, I’m at a loss as to what to write.
Thinking of you
About the only thing that comes to mind is that I am thinking of you and very thankful to all of you.
Here in my country, we are celebrating a holiday called Thanksgiving. It’s a national holiday commemorating the years before the founding of our nation, where Native Americans saved the settlers from Europe from extinction through starvation. It’s a grand sentiment and one that I love.
What I don’t love is in this age of commercialism, it also marks the start of a season in which the buying of goods to give as gifts to others. In theory, that’s very nice. In reality, it’s more of a frenzy by companies to retail their goods to a public that may or may not afford their products. Come January; many will be burdened with bills and debts to pay off. For some, it may take an entire year to resolve by which time, they do it all over again.
I admit it. I struggle in this season of mixed messages. Be thankful to those that did right by us, to welcome others, despite our differences, and love one another in celebration of our diversity.
I wish someone could reconcile my feelings. Does anyone have any ideas? I welcome your insights.
In the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving.
