Shared History

Sculpture near Columbus Circle in Manhattan

The table is placed diagonally in the dining room to accommodate all.  The china shines and the silverware glistens.  Soon, everyone will arrive.  Today, the broken bones and black eyes of youth will be forgotten.  No one will mention the jealous, spiteful, sometimes vengeful actions that, through the years, have hurt everyone so much.  The traffic tickets, reckless car crashes, histrionic behaviors are relegated to the recesses of the mind.

When the soup is served and the house is filled with the alluring aromas of what is baking, boiling and simmering in the kitchen, pleasant conversation will fill the room.  We will sit and smile and say grace on this cold but sunny Thanksgiving day.
