Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving (even those who are not in places that celebrate it). Thanksgiving is my very favorite holiday. As I have said in the past, I especially love it, not only for its meaning (which is at the heart of all worthwhile living) but because it is observed by everyone in my country. No one is excluded, no matter what your age, your religion or lack of religion, your politics, your race or ethnicity, your economic status; Thanksgiving cuts across all categories. A sense of gratitude is a plumb line by which I judge my life.
