Above is the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. I've been thinking about the way the English settlers thought off this continent: some saw it as a new Eden, others thought of it as a dangerous wilderness. I think the image hints at why each of those approaches might occur to someone encountering our land for the first time. It is a land of promise and obstruction. We are indeed fortunate to live in such a place. So it is most appropriate for all of us to stop for a bit and remember to give thanks for the graces we receive from this complicated, marvelous, awesome place.
Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow everyone. Travel safely and try to have a peaceful day of thanks!
