Dancing My Thanks

In November, when the landscape gets muted and Andrew Wyeth-y looking, we naturally want to be cozy. Shorter days and longer nights turn us inwards to cook and roast, enjoy our homes, cuddle with our loved ones, and rest. We are so geared to always be seeking, striving, and struggling to attain more. Now, we get to light candles of thanks and celebrate the harvest. Sometimes, celebrations can be quiet and peaceful. And sometimes, brash, boisterous, and bold joyful noises are …just what the Rocktor orders. This is how thank you sounds in my head and feels in my dancing feet- my morning rouser, while I make the bed and wash my breakfast bowl. I listen to “God Gave Me Everything,” performed by Mick Jagger and Lenny Kravitz.
