"I confess that I consider life to be a thing of the most untouchable deliciousness, and that even the confluence of so many disasters and deprivations, the exposure of countless fates, everything that insurmountably increased for us over the past few years to become a still rising terror cannot distract me from the fullness and goodness of existence that is inclined toward us. There would be little sense in approaching you with good wishes if each wish were not preceded by this conviction that the goods of life arise pure, undamaged, and, at their very bottom, desirable out of upheaval and ruin." -Rilke

I wish you and yours a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I will be working Tommorrow and Saturday 12 hours but just wanted to let all of you who read this blog know that I am thankful for each and everyone of your friendships.

Love the photo - is the weather raging there at the moment as depicted in the photo or is this a reflection of what is going on in your life at the moment?

The weather is wild here at the moment but I'm fairly relaxed and laid back. Winter is the time to hibernate - rest and be kind to yourself :-)
