Happy Thanksgiving: No Hard Feelings

I’ve been listening to this song a lot lately, and have yet to get through it without shedding a tear or two. I’m a sucker for a simple song of gratitude. I hope it brings some joy to your day–which may be spent arguing about politics with your family.

And maybe, when you’re done, give some thought to the folks at Standing Rock. Set aside, for a moment, the problem with the pipeline and what it would mean for the environment on a global scale, not just for the people at Standing Rock. It is a national disgrace that indigenous people-or any people–are still being treated this way by the government. If you can’t get away from work to help support them in person, please consider donating.

Happy Sunday: Manatees!

I’ve spent a lot of time in Florida. My Nana loves Disney World and would take my cousin and I there every few years or so. I don’t feel much of a need to go back to Florida…except to visit Three Sisters Springs. Earlier this week, the park had to close because hundreds of manatees were crowding around the warm springs. (I wish I was close enough to just sneak into the park, because that seems like the perfect time to visit.) I ❤ Manatees! Kayaking and snorkeling with these guys is basically my Happy Place!
