Hello fellow anime fans:

Happy Thanksgiving!! albeit belated

I hope that you were able to have a good time meeting with family and friends and share in the abundance.

If, for some reason, this was a difficult holiday for you because of hard times, then I hope all the more you will be able to find something for which to be thankful.

Many of us grew up nerds and lonely folks and otaku types. I know we are often prone to loneliness. This isolation can lead to depression, anxiety, and a lot of other ills. "It is not good for man to be alone". My family is mostly scattered. The closet relative is more than an hour drive away. As they left this weekend, I eventually felt the feeling of loneliness creep back in. Add to that isolation from being in between jobs, and the onset of the Winter blues (seasonal affective disorder), and the feelings can be crushing.

This morning I wrestled with that stuff. By some stroke, I found it in my heart to express something for which I am thankful. Maybe it's the spirit of the holiday catching me. As I said aloud that thing, it was like a hot shower on my cold and aching heart.

So, let's share one thing we can say, today, we truly are thankful for.

I am thankful for my kitty cats, and all the hugs and laughs and meows and bird-cackles and purrs we have shared together.

I'm thankful I'm so depressed that I have enough insight to see that I'm not being the person I am intended to be, and that it pisses me off.

Here in Chicagoland, what I wouldn't give to have 71 degrees like they have in Dallas today. But: thankful we at least don't have snow!

I'm thankful that, at last count, I was able to share about 25,000 meals this year at a free park service. And last. And.. well, it's an ongoing thing, though the need has been growing. Started off around 1,000, years ago. We do our best to keep up.

I'm thankful for my parents, my gifts, my ability to see, hear, listen, to taste, my toys and plushies... I'm thankful most of all for still being alive and showing to many doctors I can survive due to my issues.

Life is definitely something to be thankful.

I'm thankful for this sermon that I watched yesterday.

Today I am thankful it is so bright and sunny. We have had a run of about five days with overcast and barely any light. So glad to have that today --and some big windows to let it in.
