You Can’t Always Get What You Want

I’ve been thinking about the holidays. It surprises me to no end that Thanksgiving is next week. This will be the second year in a row that I won’t be able to go back to Hoots for the holidays. I’m a little sad about it but there really isn’t anything I can do about it. I know people hate the term “it is what it is” but in this case that’s the only thing I can come up with. I’ll have a couple of days off from work but SQ will be slammed busy.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about community. I have a pretty nice community here in Nashville. I don’t think I expected the way it was built when I first moved up here but it grew rather organically.

There is a meme occurring on Facebook right now where people are documenting daily what they are thankful for. It’s a nice respite from the political fervor that has been going on for the past few months.

So this morning, I’m thankful for the Rolling Stones who are speaking for me today.

It’s true, you know.
