Last year we began a tradition with friends that put an end to the sloth and gluttony of Thanksgiving Day. We did the same this year. Packing up the fixings for an al fresco Thanksgiving atop a beautiful mountain. The weather was unseasonally warm with clear skies. We hiked all day and had a most memorable time.
As the sun was heading down in the west, we were heading down the mountain. Bellies full but not stuffed and in the company of beloved friends. This re-created holiday tradition has been a wonderful antidote to the old tradition. How did the holiday treat you and yours this year? May we carry the thankfulness of the day with us going forward into the coming season.
