Giving Thanks

To be standing atop the ground, instead of under it. Unemployed, but not destitute. Allowed to broadcast conscious sounds without restrictions. The Bush years, in the rear-view (though, with "centrist" Democrats, who needs Republicans?).

It's a short list for Thanksgiving... but, there are things for which to be thankful.

Jah Provide.
