Giving Thanks

Horton is one of two new balloons in this year’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The uptowners got a glimpse of the elephant who was tied down behind Shrek. Who knew Shrek wears plaid pants?

Meanwhile, in the news, Mumbai, India’s financial center and largest port, was rocked by terrorists who killed early Wednesday. Om Malik comments here: http://gigaom.com/2008/11/26/mumbai-terror-attack/ He points out that though the country and the city have been terrorized in the past, the target this time is five star hotels.

A classmate of the 11-year old’s are in Mumbai this week, celebrating the 70th birthday of the boy’s grandmother… we wish them safety and peace. Chilling really and a brazen reminder of the reality of the world, flat as it may be.

On this day, and always, I am thankful for my children, my husband, our good health, friends and extended family, deep breaths and silence.

  2. Awesome! I haven’t been to the “balloon blow-up” since I was a kid. I hear it’s unbelievably crowded now. Last time I went, there were about 30 or 40 other people there. It always felt like a great New York secret.
