Preparations are being made.. Turkeys are getting set for their pardons. Others are plucked and ready for an oven baked night of finger licking food. Thanksgiving is set for this week. No stopping it, the calender does not lie and time does not give any extra seconds to get things right.. But things this year may be very wrong. A potential storm is in the making for Thanksgiving in my neck of the turkey. Of course, the fact it could not materialize is still present–as happened with a Thanksgiving storm in 2013 that never took off–but the potential is there. It could strike on party night.. and linger into the morning. If it happens. Making the planes, trains, and automobiles even worse off ..
But it’s Sunday. And if it’s Sunday, there’s a lonely sidewalk to stroll on. Get ready..

GRAPHIC IMAGES SHOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE.. These images are rough to see in some respects, but also extremely beautiful if you contemplate what people do to respect a corpse once a soul has left it.. The images actually forced me to contemplate even harder the question, ‘what is death?’ How could someone, so active and alive, breathe one second but a human bag of flesh void of any marker showcasing the person’s life the next? Is it just like a computer shutdown? Something that works one minute just does not the next .. ? Or is it that important soul, if a soul exists? Does the entity that inhabits the body leave? So many questions that will never be answered–but my hunt for any evidence of anything continues unabated..

Murdered because they weren’t Muslim: Jihadists kill 28 people on Kenyan bus after asking passengers to prove they’re not ‘infidels’
A good British report from the UK INDEPENDENT on the ‘American’ Black Friday creation.. The paper asks if the discounts are helpful or it’s just a trick.. There’s a chance you can find something good. Like my local Turkey Hill offering up Ice Cream for a buck. But most of the stuff that goes on sale is unnecessary junk, just heaps of plastic foreign slave labor made products that don’t have a place in someone’s less than stellar dwelling. Let’s get real this year.. Set a budget, that’s one thing. But beyond that, buy something that truly has meaning–even if you give one gift to a person instead of ten, make that one gift be heartfelt and monumental in its importance. Or just brave the madness that will be Black Friday .. you can always do that, too, I suppose (I may, for that ice cream)

Go to the light! Quite literally.. if you want to feel better and have something serious, light therapy may be for you. Lately, in my personal world of home base, light has been hard to find. Sunny days are not abundant, it’s been a very bleak November ever since Halloween ended.. And the cloudy impact has had an emotional one on my well being, with the sun seemingly vacated life, happiness has not abounded.. I just one a sunny day, one to bless my face with warmth .. just one day. It seems so hard to find this time of year. This article is a showcase as to why light, and the sun, is important. Vitamin D’s best source is the giant light in the sky.. mood depression and other disorders could be solved with some rays..
