Here in the United States, it’s Thanksgiving. While the history of Thanksgiving is rather fraught–our histories making this look all peaceful and wonderful and avoiding the more difficult aspects of the colonists relationships with the tribes that were already here–the name of the day is something to think about. What are our blessings? What do we give thanks for?

I am thankful for readers and for the ability to do something I love and still manage to pay the bills. So thank you to all.
