Thanksgiving EVERY day.

Because Seth Godin's posts always seem to hit me at the heart level, and because today I'm focusing on drawing instead of writing, I'm re-posting another one of his blog entries... because I concur with his thoughts—110%. SOON, I'll post something original. But for now, enjoy Seth's philosophy.

A modern thanksgiving

Wherever you are, you could celebrate Thanksgiving today.

Not the Thanksgiving of a bountiful harvest before the long winter, the holiday of pilgrims and pie. That's a holiday of scarcity averted. I'm imagining something else...

A modern Thanksgiving would celebrate two things:

The people in our lives who give us the support and love we need to make a difference, and...

The opportunity to build something bigger than ourselves, something worth contributing. The ability to make connections, to lend a hand, to invent and create.

There are more of both now than there have ever been before. For me, for you, for just about all of us.

Thanks for joining me every day, thanks for your support, but most of all, by a longshot, thanks for doing the work, work that matters.

Amen brother! To view his amazing blog in it's entirety, click here.
