So ... what'dya think?
We're approaching Thanksgiving. A time for reflection and appreciation for the blessings and fortunes of our lives. I'm thankful for my wife and family, our health, our wonderful home in Alaska, and our numerous friends both here and around the world. While it's fitting and proper we set aside one day to give pause for the good things we enjoy in our lives, not to mention that we have life to enjoy in the first place, I feel a sense of personal satisfaction and thankfulness everyday. This is the time of year when one empties out the freezer of life's fruits, let 'em thaw and cook 'em up. The good, the bad and ugly all together on the table, maybe boiled up in a large vat of one-of-a-kind stew or an "old timee" Alaskan soup, stir in the fellowship of lifetime friends and it all comes out pretty sweet. Everyone takes turns bellying-up to the table loading their plate and filling their bowls with the ladle: we pile on what suits us, sit at the table in warm conversation with friends, chow it down and then go back for seconds, and thirds and more if we want, until it's gone. It's life itself. Welcome to the table ... load up your plate, have a seat, give thanks, eat as much as you can ... so, uh .... whad'y think? Want seconds?

Here's some of my feast, stuff on my plate, take a bite, along with some of the others you've seen here. Images from Prince William Sound, Alaska ... It's a moving feast ...
