I am grateful for many things, but none of them would be possible if I didn't live on this beautiful planet. The above picture was taken in northern Norway last March. I am also grateful for the people who take such photos and share them. The internet has truly changed my life, enriching it in ways I could never have imagined a few years ago.
Today there is no hike, so I am home with Smart Guy cooking up a Thanksgiving feast. I'm making a couple of things to honor my mother in particular, and my family of origin in general. I wish I were with them today. Holidays often do this to me: make me nostalgic for times gone by. I hope you have a truly wonderful day, whether in this country or elsewhere. Blessings from the Pacific Northwest.
