It is Thanksgiving here, and I want to thank all of you for accompanying me on my exploration of home, history, nature, and my little store in the Catskills; and for providing me with good company along the way, from across this country and around the world.

For me Thanksgiving is about home. And home is about family and friends. Loved ones. Not being alone. This extraordinary song, To Build A Home by the Cinematic Orchestra says it beautifully.

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls, and window sills,
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust,
This is a place where I don't feel alone,
This is a place where I feel at home.

I hope today finds you somewhere that you feel at home.
