Thanksgiving is excellent!

What do you do when you're almost done doing everything?

Yes, I know that's a pretty stupid question!

But what if you're located in a wonderfully cohesive community,

outside of all immediate negative societal outfall!

...and what if your preps are way more that adequate?

...even though every last family member might come to roost with you there, in your fluffy-fluffy nest?

...and what if you're not so perfect after all.

...on edge sometimes...maybe even angry too!

...although you do sense that it's way too soon for you to falter...

...or show any sign of weakness!

Given enough uncertainty, even a rat and a mongoose might share this precarious perch!

 ...waiting there for something... just about anything to happen...too petrified to move!

But, ultimately Life is so very good.

...no uncertainty really lasts that long.

Life's arms always are there holding you tight, from cradle to grave

...in every instant, or so it seems to me!

Momentarily my anger wanes, and my understanding expands

...out of the darkness loving hands reach forth.

Some stretch wide to help their community,

 others likewise pull their family close,

...and many like me even try to save themselves:)

Thanksgiving and gratitude are a big heaping plate of Life's bounty being recognized, right here, and right now!

...we really are all so incredibly blessed!

Thank you friends!

...................................................................................................................

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son!

Who is better at poetry than the Moon?

Plato, thank you so very much too, my friend.

Life's great dance is almost imperceptible, except for those who can really sway freely

and feel the healing flow...

Thank you Chris for a Thanksgiving heart that has been true over so many years,

All for my friends and loved ones who have done so very well...and who've been so blessed by you!

Blessings to all of us all on a Full MoonThanksgiving!

Life completely loves us all!

Thank you friends!
