I wish it weren’t so, but I take too many good things in life for granted. So now’s the time to get it all down, when everybody has left the office for several days and friends and family have flown the coop and burrowed themselves into mounds of food and submitted to mega-blasts of football. So by the time everybody returns this post should be lost in the digital shuffle—which is probably as it should be.
My reasons to be thankful:
1. Co-workers who demand excellence from themselves and are tolerant of the foibles of others.
2. PR News‘ patient IT genius, Jon Iverson.
3. A subway system that gets me where I need to go at any time of day or night, in rain and usually snow, and the passengers who are far more respectful and considerate than they’re ever given credit for.
4. Turner Classic Movies and the Film Forum.
5. Tom Waits.
6. The New York Times.
7. My family.
