The Long Road Home

This is a Thanksgiving piece.  What I see here is a highway stretching off into the distance, trees on the left and mountains on the right.  Up ahead is a tunnel.  I’m pretending it’s the Eisenhower Tunnel on Interstate 70 west of Denver.

It’s a Thanksgiving piece because I think of Thanksgiving as a time of “going home,” a time to be with families.

I decided to take a little break over the Thanksgiving weekend, but want to acknowledge what I’m thankful for:

  • Family… my sibs and their spouses and kids, Mr. Aerten and his parents and sib (and said sib’s spouse and kids), The Offspring and The Angel
  • Friends… from the ones I’ve known since we were in kindergarten to the ones I continue to discover every day, both in 3D and online
  • Abundance… while not perfect, I have my health; while not “wealthy,” I have what I need; and I have an abundance of joy and love in my life
  • You… the folks who come here to look at my art, and sometimes comment.  You make it so much more fun to do this!

Don’t forget to count your blessings during the holidays that are going on between now and the end of the year.  And just to make them a little more fun, I’ll post all those I know about.  Feel free to tell me about any I may miss over the course of the coming month.
