Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving means something different to everyone.  I can be something of a complainer, but on Thanksgiving I try to take some time to reflect on the things for which I am truly thankful. Like many others, I am the beneficiary of gifts - direct and indirect - that have shaped my life.  While I tend to be a lone wolf, I am also the recipient of much help and guidance from others.  Nobody is truly alone in this world, and I am thankful to those who have helped me, either overtly or through an invisible hand.

I am thankful for the safe arrival of our second child and the continued happiness my little family.  I am thankful for the good (and improving) health of those close to me.  I am blessed to have had good opportunities in life and I hope to create new and wonderful things as a means of acknowledging these gifts.

I am also thankful for those out there who have followed this web site.  While I consider this a self-indulgent project, I get really jazzed when I hear from readers.  (I guess I'm thankful I don't get more hate mail.)  We live in exciting times.  As long as we keep our eyes on the horizon, continue to do good work and proceed cautiously through the negativity, we will be alright.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all of yours.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I appreciate your work that keeps me updated on the Haynesville Shale.

Very nice post. I love your site and I know of many who utilize it often and many are not posters so you'd unlikely hear much from them.

Have a great holiday.
