I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Thanksgiving


I was offline for the holiday last week, but I did want to share this wonderful quote from Oliver Sacks:

My predominant feeling is one of gratitude.
I have loved and been loved.
I have been given much and I have given something in return.
Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and pleasure.

A belated happy Thanksgiving to everyone, and here's one more piece of wisdom I was happy to discover still holds true: Baste the turkey with butter. You can never go wrong with butter.
