My favorite holiday. No expectations, no guilt, no ideology.

Thanksgiving represents the best in humans: Contributing with no expectations of anything in return. The man in Kyoto who showed me the way to a shrine, spending more than 30 minutes of his life to help me. The Twitter follower who explained for more than 2 hours how to install a WordPress theme. The woman who crashed into my car (it was my fault) and hugged me when I needed it most.

They never expected to be paid back. It is such a priceless gift. It creates meaning and purpose.

Thank you for reading my posts. Thank you for being kind and helpful. Thank you for being yourself.

And a special thank you to everyone helping people when they need it most. Not when it’s convenient.

Thank you.
