Happy Thanksgiving

The news of the moment is not happy. More shootings. More dead. I read the articles for the body count, Nothing comes of it. The majority is ignored so that laws for gun control are a distant dream. How many? Died.

I have much to be thankful for and I feel guilty as though I am in a small bubble. Nonetheless, there are millions who celebrate and many who cannot. Colleen is always mindful and keeps me grounded. To all: best wishes for this day.

As I am writing, about 24 hrs hence we will have a turkey in the oven and await family who will arrive for dinner. The celebrations are more rare and precious with the passing years.

In closing and with hope: Go with the promise of a new day and all of its possibilities.


Three star

I rate my pictures as I edit. Two stars – technically good, not outstanding, but a good shot. Three stars – a little bit better. I’m looking through three star edits. No worries. Good shots. Fun. Solid. Wow! They might make you smile. It’s not necessarily an easy shot to get. The smiles are real. I can admire my technical prowess sometimes. It’s like kids. Don’t you love them all? Equally?
