Interesting perspective. I've noticed that the US has a lot going on at the end of the year: Halloween, Thanksgiving and then Christmas and finally New Year. We don't make nearly so much of Halloween, preferring Bonfire Night in November and have no Thanksgiving. In the Christian calendar there is Harvest Festival, usually in September, but that hasn't been secularized so doesn't figure in the lives of everyone.

But of course that doesn't make us any further from our ancestors... after all we have buildings that are 100s of years old still going strong. Those that have survived the bombings of past wars... hmm... lots to think about here Tinker... thank YOU!

I like your perspective of the harvesting rituals being engraved in our bones. And yes, it's sad that the war talk has yet to subside. Wonderful piece, Terri! Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving! xo


This was a poignant time...of love and longing...and expectation as we await the Christmas season. Tonight my oldest grandson, his girlfriend and his sister, came over and put up the Christmas tree for us...and it is beautiful and magical.

Thankful...I am thankful for your friendship, Terri!
