Happy Thanksgiving

 

I often tell people that one of the things I like about living in Mexico City is that it allows me to skip Thanksgiving dinner. A long story: I come from a very conflicted family, and I’ve never been a big turkey guy. However, I confess that I try as often as possible to think about how much I have to be thankful for. My work as a mitigation specialist, which gets me very close to families that have no resources — neither financial, emotional nor practical — makes me think about what my family, difficult as it may have been, was able to offer me. I hope those of you who are in a similar position will reflect on this, not just on the holiday but whenever you can.

And yeah, that’s my thumb in the photo. One of the things I can’t be very thankful for is my talent as a photographer.

    I’m a little late but still eating the turkey. Happy back at you, Thanksgiving or life in general!
