What are you thankful for?
The Milky Way, and living in a place where I can see it almost every night.
Family and friends and all the many people who fall into both categories, one way or another.
Animals, even when they're being holy terrors.
In a few weeks, I imagine that I shall be extremely thankful for the internet. I'm always somewhat thankful for it, but I haven't been spending much time online in the past few months because I've been spending a lot of time outside with my boyfriend, who, in mid-December, is moving to rural Virginia. Living in rural Wyoming is, for the most part, wonderful, but because I come from more populated areas where there are more people and more ideas and more art and more–well, just more–I sometimes feel a little lost here. The internet–or more exactly, the people who make it up–are part of how I manage to feel a little less like a tiny dot on a dry, windswept hill.
A Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the US–and a happy day to all. Here's a picture from the trip Jim and I took to Utah just recently. Lots more where it came from on Flickr, and more on the way. . . I went a little crazy with the camera.
