If you're reading this in America and it's Thanksgiving Day/Night, I really wish you'd step away from the computer and make conversation with somebody around you. Stranger. Family. Friend. That in-law you don't really feel like you have anything in common with--just talk.
Because here we all are, alive on this crazy spinning planet. Some days the chips are down and we have to bluff our way back into the game, but there's a game, and we've got a chance, and there isn't really anything more empowering than that. I'm thankful for it.
I'm thankful that even in this crazy era of publishing--self-publishing, Big 6 mergers, books that aren't well written selling a bajillion copies--people are still reading, stories are still being told, and the connection between humans flourishes.
And that's why I want you to go talk to the people near you.
Because we all want to be heard.
And we all want to feel less alone.
As long as there are people around on, we can do both.
