Thanksgiving Eve On The Road.

Here I am, leaning over a set of drums and watching some family members play billiards. I just scarfed down some tasty, farm-raised turkey. Even better -- I'm somewhat inebriated after quite a few beers and three glasses of wine. Life is certainly good.

Writing from the road is always a blessing and a curse. Sure, I'm on vacation, but it's difficult to publish a blog from your smart phone. I'm an old school writer; I like the feel of a keyboard sitting in front of me. But, the trade off is worth it at times. Spending time with the folks I love is valuable; I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I have learned a few valuable bits of info just now. I'm still terrible at pool and being drunk doesn't improve my gameplay ability. Alas, I guess I'll just keep drinking.

On the verge of this year's Thanksgiving, I want to reiterate the importance of the holiday. Stay home with the ones you love. Don't spend your valuable hours waiting in line at a department store. No television, no video game console, no diamond bracelet is worth the time you could be spending with your family and friends.

The most valuable things in life can't be bought or sold. They can only be shared freely in the spirit of love and selflessness.

Look to the person beside you, no matter who they are, and give them a hug. Say "I love you." It'll be worth it, I promise.
