We have so much to be thankful for.  (Well okay, maybe not this guy – he’s about to be dinner!)  But I think that it’s somehow easy for us to lose sight of that, at least sometimes.  So having a day set aside where we can remember to remember all that we have in our lives is a good thing.

We are artists, in a society that supports the arts, amid a culture that appreciates arts in a wide variety of forms.  That right there is worthy of celebration.  We have amazing, fantastic tools at our disposal, at price points that are affordable to the great majority of us, and with a selection that is, frankly, staggering.  We have the technical ability to make images that could never be made before.  And we have the connections to share them, to learn from one another, and to share our vision with the world.

It’s really just amazing, when you take a moment to really appreciate it!

I know that I’m thankful, for all of these things.  And even more so, I’m thankful for so many pieces of my life on a personal level.  So today I’ll be celebrating that and, amid the gluttony, I’ll be taking a moment to say a silent thanks to the universe.

Here’s wishing you all the happiest of Thanksgivings, filled with good friends and family and warm spirits!
