Thanks Giving

by lizard

It’s holiday time, so be kind, and be careful. Tis the season to be stressed out, and with stress comes all kinds of inadequate coping strategies, like binge drinking.

Ask anyone who works in the ER, or in law enforcement, or in social services about what this time of year produces. Be thankful they work the jobs they do, especially during the holidays, when people really lose their shit.

When I think about it, I have a lot to be thankful for.

Usually I don’t think about things to be thankful for. That’s because I spend too much time and energy staring at goddamn screens, watching horrors unfold.

But I have a lot to be thankful for, friends and family first and foremost. And I’m thankful for this virtual venue, which allows me to share my opinions and poetics.

I’m also thankful for any kind of ceasefire, no matter how tenuous or ultimately politically strangled the situation remains.

Lots to be thankful for, like this song from Vetiver, called You May Be Blue. Enjoy!

    I’m thankful we didn’t invite Aunt Alsop this year to dinner.
