What I’m Thankful For


I’m thankful that I get to write this blog without being censored.

I’m thankful that I  do not need to worry about serving any corporate master (even if that means I am currently unemployed).

I’m thankful that I can still go to a restaurant without passing through a metal detector or a security checkpoint.

I’m thankful that I do not own a gun.

I’m thankful that, despite the fact that we live in a dangerous world and there are plenty of things to fear, I do not live in fear.

I’m thankful that the sun will not burn out for another 5 billion years even if it might make us hot and miserable long before then.

I’m thankful that no one I know will be voting for Donald Trump (at least I hope this is true).

I’m thankful that presidential elections provide some measure of entertainment even if they do not provide much else to be thankful for.

I’m thankful for baseball.

I’m thankful for books.

I’m thankful for music.

I’m thankful for art.

I’m thankful for movies.

I’m thankful for food and water.

I’m thankful for my family.

I’m thankful for my friends.

I’m thankful that I am breathing.

I’m thankful that I live on this crazy planet in the middle of the black unimaginable vastness of space.

And I’m thankful that even if very little of it makes sense or can even be comprehended, we still get the chance to try.
