I am thankful my family in New York, while still partially displaced, avoided the worst of the wrath of Sandy. I am grateful for my much-missed friend Sean who is working for the Peace Corps in South Africa, not only for his friendship but because he is so worthy, I can shine a little in his reflected light, and stop worrying I am not worthy enough. I am thankful for my good health, relative wealth, and the luxury of a career based largely in self-expression. And as I anticipate the holiday, I am thankful for my friend Deb's Thanksgiving stuffing, even if it lands me in the cardiac unit, because I have been eating it for almost 20 Thanksgivings and it is a big part of what has made L. A. become my home.
