From the New World

My brother called me about an hour ago, asking in a casual fashion what we were doing for Thanksgiving.

"Staying home, cooking and eating," I told him, happily. "You're invited."

"Good," he replied, "because I didn't want to invite myself."

Turns out he will be in town until early Friday morning.

I never, ever know where he will turn up next.

And that's ok.

That he has a place to land here with us is one more thing for which to be thankful.

And I am.

Go listen to some good music: "Symphony #9: From the New World. IV. Allegro Con Fuoco" from the album Dvorak: Symphony #9: "From the New World" by Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
