Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I love the fall and food and family and friends. And it’s such a direct holiday; there’s no beating around the bush or confusion about the meaning of Thanksgiving. We look at what we have, count our blessings, and give thanks. Thanksgiving isn’t about any particular religion or politics or nationality; it’s simply about being aware, being mindful.
Because I live so far away from most of my family, I never know where I’ll end up on holidays. This year, some friends, the new owners of one of the radon health mines near Boulder, Montana, invited me to join them and their guests - known as “health miners” to many - for a Thanksgiving feast.
