Jon Kennedy, webmaster Thanksgiving memories, 2002

I hope you've all had good Thanksgiving holidays. If you were too busy to read Judy Rose's short story in yesterday's post, I hope you'll take a few minutes to do so still. It's a heart-warming piece and represents a real gift to us on this list. Also, if you haven't checked out the front page recently, I think you'll enjoy the snow photos before they go away to make room for the Christmas decorations next week. I'm sure those of us who don't have to cope with the real wet and slippery stuff enjoy those photos more than those who do.

My holiday was well spent. My younger son, Kevin, and his fiance, Maya, hosted older son Mike and me, and Maya's mother, at the latter's home, preparing and providing a wonderful feast. Though I "never" play games, after the five of us enjoyed our meal, we played a new game, Hoopla, that combines elements of Charades and Trivial Pursuits, and which we all enjoyed.

Perhaps the reason I liked it was the fact that all the players are on the same team, and they all play against only the clock, in which respect it's rather like life.

On arriving home, NBC was presenting a fascinating special on Elvis Presley, which was sure to get the attention of anyone of my generation, and several generations after ours, I think. One of my favorite contemporary musicians, U2's Bono (Paul David Hewson), had the deepest and most concise thoughts about the phenomenon of Elvis Presley, the nub of which was this: "The power of rock and roll is the influence of gospel on one hand of the blues on the other. In Elvis, it was like he had one hand on the positive pole and the other on the negative."

Thought for today

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves, or rather loved in spite of ourselves.
