Tonight I am preparing Thanksgiving dinner for tommorow and listening to this cd. To me, Thanksgiving is my favorite "holiday" because it has become about having family and friends over to share in companionship and good food without the the other 'dressings' of christmas gifts, fireworks, etc. But is just about the joy of being together. While in America many holidays have become just a day of being off or of getting gifts (even people of other religions have joined in the gift melee of Christmas) Thanksgiving has also transformed into a day of just being with family, and also a day of making sure those without families are invited to join into the campanionship of family. So listening to this cd of the heart seems just perfect, puts me in the thanks mode while preparing the food we all will share in. I had the honor of sharing food with Beaver Chief and know that the preparation of food with a good heart is very important in his tradition, and listening to this beautiful heartful joyful cd is the perfect way to do so.
