Well, I’m back from Atlanta and Turkey Day is over. The lot next to me is still being ravaged by The Doctor, but at least my two little dogs, Silver and Lucy were glad to see me. I felt like a beast leaving them in the kennel, since while we were packing they thought they were going on a trip, too. Why do we do this to ourselves: thousands drive to Atlanta while thousands head in the other direction. We load up on groceries and cook, cook, cook. I think the underlying principle here is consumption. We are being encouraged to consume, consume, consume. As for Black Friday, don’t even go there.
