All across our land, friends and family will be gathering to share love and . . . be thankful. It’s the day when we celebrate Thanksgiving in the U.S.
We travel far and wide to see family, go back home or visit old friends. It rekindles our spirit to reunite and break bread together remembering those no longer with us and celebrate what we’ve done.
More and more, as technology opens up this big, beautiful world, we make new friends and learn about new cultures and places. I’m mindful of the many talents and gifts we’ve been given and the global canvas on which to express them.
I hope you can steal away for a little while this holiday and reflect on Thanksgiving with me through this beauty and song. I want to share messages of hope and gratitude through the talents of time-lapse photography and song in “Gratitude: by Louie Schwartzberg at Ted Talks” and “Thankful” by Josh Groban.
As you celebrate and enjoy food with family and friends, I hope you will notice the subtle flows of movement and gentle shifts of change in the world around you, listen closer and hug your people a little tighter.

Beautiful my friend. In our harried life, we often don’t take the time to realize how lucky we are. 🙂
Thank you, Susan, for stopping by and spending a little time and reflecting with me on Thanksgiving. I know it’s a busy time for you. Hope you have a special blessed time with your family and friends. I can only imagine the great food that will be shared around your table, my friend. 🙂

Thank you, Shaun. I’m so happy you enjoyed Louie Schwartzberg’s video on Gratitude. It’s pretty powerful, with a touching message a lot of us know but rarely get a chance to feel until we’re shown like this through time-lapse photography and humble words. 🙂
