Happy Thanksgiving!

As for my impressions on Thanksgiving, I am a bit at a loss as to how they belong in today's entry on TLLG. I have been severely bitten by the nearly poisonous "branding bug" — the how does it relate to you and what you do sort of bug —  and it has been somewhat detrimental in terms of my "normal" creative work flow. Besides this, as a blogger, writer and conversationalist, yours truly is not a fan of the "I" pronoun, for I (there it is already) am not someone whose comings and goings matter to the cyber-space world in terms of what I am doing or not doing on Thanksgiving — or any other day for that matter — as say Angelina Jolie, Demi Moore, Martha Stewart, or even some bloggers with a lot of followers are.
However, I confess that I used to subscribe to the belief that "memoir style writing" (a genre which I have been fairly good at producing), in terms of most matters, gave voice to those who could not articulate their thoughts and feelings by allowing them to be activated by the "I" pronoun of those who could.

Taking all the aforementioned into consideration, I'll share just a couple of Thanksgiving related things with you on this holiday: "Art", and a "Movie".  (Sharing a recipe is probably not an option for me: I despise shopping for food, preparing food, and sometimes even eating food; although to look at my belly you might not surmise the latter).

The "art" I am sharing is the following Black and White photograph, which is titled, Thanksgiving in Riverdale,

and was taken by yours truly at a Thanksgiving party, that I attended many years ago. I wrote about this photograph in a blog entry at the onset of this blog, and you may refer to the related post by clicking here

I am including this image in my entry today, in the event that you are spending part of your Thanksgiving in cyberspace (to avoid family arguments or get away from your NFL watching guests)! And the little "movie" I am including (below) is fun. It is a You Tube video of The Clangers, and, even though it is not Thanksgiving themed, it most certainly has some subliminal (and very sweet) messages about the meaning of this holiday.



That's it for today, dear reader, except to  wish you a truly blessed and happy  Thanksgiving!
