This is what I believe is known in the rest of the blogosphere as an "open thread" of sorts, designed to stimulate your comments and let you do the work of blogging so I don't have to.The question is: What are you thankful for this year?It's not an easy question that makes it easy to avoid trite -- or even false -- answers. Sometimes, it's hard to look at one's life and find anything worth being thankful for.That said, I'll give it a try. I'm thankful, today, for a particular moment.That moment was last night. My lovely wife -- who I'm thankful for every moment, particularly on this, our third Thanksgiving together -- was cooking dinner. I kept her company by sitting at the kitchen table and playing around on the "new" manual typewriter a friend found for me, costing all of $5. We were piping in the new opera station on Pandora over the stereo. We had opened a bottle of wine.It was good. And I am grateful to have had such moment.Happy Thanksgiving.
