This time of year always makes me think…
It makes me think about the basic meaning of Thanksgiving (like, all the guilty icky parts), about how social constructions of thanks and thankfulness and thankful activities impact different people (ie social class and social inequality), and about the idea of being thankful in general.
I don’t have any answers. All I can hope for is to do something nice with my days, something nice for others, and that you all get to do the same.
Have an enjoyable mid-week weekend, but please take a moment to look at whatever it is you are doing (and why) a little critically.
Love, love, love!!
