I write this from the airport waiting lounge at Newark. I will be going to visit my family for a week for Thanksgiving. This trip could not come at a better time, I have really been in the doldrums the past couple of weeks. It has been a perfect storm of shit related to money, health, and dating life. It will be good to see the family and think about other things and try to make some plans to deal with all of these. And Thanksgiving is really one of my favorite holidays, divorced as it is from the ugly consumer anschluss of the Christmas season. Thanksgiving is just about sharing a meal with people you love, and telling them you love them. I revel in the simple pleasure of that.
