(I don’t really get why some people are so icked-out by the word “moist”.)
It’s Thanksgiving in the U.S., so any and all posts today on the Accordion Guy blog are about being thankful. If you live in the U.S. or any of the G7 countries (it used to be the G8, but we’re giving Russia a time-out), you are so far ahead of the curve that you’ve got plenty to be thankful for, even with the news headlines as they are.
Whether or not it’s Thanksgiving where you are, take a moment and reflect on what you have, be thankful, and then work to make the world — all of it, not just your little corner — a better place. And yes, even the smallest contribution helps.
If you’re looking for some interesting listening while driving to your Thanksgiving dinner destination or preparing the meal, here’s something you might like: Snap Judgement’s Gratitude 2016 episode. Snap Judgement is a great public radio show featuring some fantastic stories and storytelling, and it’s on high rotation on my phone’s podcast apps.
The Gratitude 2016 episode features stories about being thankful and you listen to it in its entirety with the player below…
…or you can listen to one of its stories, a sweet one that starts off being about a boyfriend, but ends up being about family:
Also worth checking out is last year’s episode, Gratitude 2015, whose stand-out story is also about family, a father and a son, life and death, and a kid’s very funny idea of what “the birds and the beeds” is actually about.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
