Happy Thanksgiving

While we await what comes next for society and markets, let's not lose sight that previous generations have endured and thrived in conditions far harsher than anything even most impoverished Americans have experienced. Our ancestors were not some different species - we have in us the same toughness, the bravery, the same ability to build up communities with the long run in mind. That our current society reflects a decadence and corruption that would have appalled and startled those of previous generations is all part of the same cycle. We'll get to live through the next Great Turning of the wheel. As we live through it, let's take time to stop and give thanks for the good things that were passed along to us and to plan for a better future for those who will follow us.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all. I'll be traveling quite a bit and posts will be light until next week. I think mood has held up well enough that there hopefully won't be any nasty surprises over the next week or so and we can all digest our turkey in peace.

Happy Thanksgiving Early

I'm tied up in meetings and then on the road soon, so Happy Thanksgiving to you all. We are living in interesting times to say the least.

Thanksgiving is a great time to reflect on the year past and prepare for the year to come. Reconnect with those you care about. Look at your life and give thanks for the many mercies and blessings that have come your way this year. Good friends, family and community will once again become of vital importance to you - as they have been for much of human history.

We are entering dark times, but that doesn't mean we can't find personal fulfillment and happiness in a time of chaos. It just means we have to approach it with a prepared mind.

As a Thanksgiving bonus, I give you one of the best Thanksgiving sit com episodes ever shot.

As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly...
