Giving Thanks

As I start to write this post it’s Wednesday afternoon and I’m on a jet airliner, 10,000 feet above eastern Georgia (or perhaps Alabama, if we’ve crossed the state line by now).  That’s right, the plane I am on has free wi-fi.  Free wi-fi ON A PLANE.  I live in a sci-fi novel.

Anyway, I thought in honor of the holiday tomorrow, I’d do the traditional thing and write a short post about some things I am grateful for (other than unexpected internet connections).  I’m grateful that I have a job where I get paid to be outside, sharing my love of nature with others.  I’m grateful for the love and support of my friends and family.  And, odd though it may seem, I am grateful to all of you who read this blog.  When I started it in March I barely dreamed I’d soon attract a number of regular readers other than my parents and friends.  Blogging has proved to be not only a fun outlet for writing regularly – at one point in my childhood I wanted to be a novelist when I grew up! – it has also spurred me to increase my knowledge of my area’s natural history and improve my photography skills, plus led to me to many other fascinating, insightful blogs that I now consider must-reads.  So I really mean this, all: thanks.  And happy Turkey Day, however you celebrate it.
