Thanksgiving – An Island of Stability

Life can be maddening in the flux and change presented to us—even the world’s climate that surrounds us is apparently undergoing significant change.  How can we gain stability and get a foothold?  A sense of home is in one sense a sense of place.  I especially remember this year those who have been uprooted from their homes and sent adrift in the world.  Thank goodness for Thanksgiving—a holiday filled with deep family and friendship ties set apart in steadfast images.  While we can be thankful for many things, this reliable tribute to warmth of feeling itself anchors us.  The quest for freedom and diversity ultimately rests upon this reliable resource of home and hearth.  Such humble, intimate domestic origins give rise to the loftiest cosmopolitan goals.
