Beauty everywhere. Look up, look down, look all around.
Days like today remind me how lucky I am, and how much I have to be thankful for.
Here’s just a few visuals for this Thanksgiving Day, of the things in my life that bring me joy:
Lamp lights, clock lights, and holiday lights, in this darkest time of year.
Old favorite books, like friends lined up on their shelves.
Oak trees that hold fast to their foliage, all winter long.
Concerts by well-dressed performers, right down the street.
Lovely neighbors of all architectural styles.
A glorious museum nearby, free to all with a library card from Our Fair City.
Owls in the art (this by Jamie Wyeth, at the MFA) and owls on my walks.
Sunsets that demand I dash up to the roof to fully take them in.
A local Donut Emergency Squad at the ready.
A nice warm home, well renovated and well lit, ready to enfold my loved ones and their friends.
Happy Thanksgiving, one and all.
Horrible photo, but I can’t resist. That’s the view out my bedroom window, from last night. Memorial Church in the background, behind the lights of the design school closer by. Oh, and that lump in the tree, tail feathers sticking down, just above and to the right of the Mem Church steeple? A wild urban turkey, hunkered down on a snowy Thanksgiving Eve. Stay safe, bud.
