Thanksgiving week. It’s official. Witih all that’s on our plates, and with travel schedules being what they might be, the idea of stopping and really looking at what’s happening isn’t making the top 10 list of Things To Do. So, to move the focus back to our lives, I’ve asked a few of you to send along some of their thoughts about Thanksgiving. No guidelines were conveyed. This is a totally creative effort. Nothing was changed with the exception of spell checking the content.
Today, we’ll start the week hearing from DOUGLAS KARABASZ, the Art Director of NBC affiliate KPRC, the Post Newsweek station in Houston, TX. Douglas was able to fit my request in, despite the pressures of November AND getting ready for his upcoming trip. On Friday, he’s taking off for a long trip to India, where he and his wife will check out all parts of this exotic country. Yes, he’s promised to let us know how it all goes, and we’ll hold him to it. So, I turn the column to Mr. K:
This has been an exciting year personally and I can’t be anymore thankful. I’m thankful for change; without it we would not be presented with opportunities even if it seems as if those opportunities are sometimes cleverly concealed as problems. I have been able to find the opportunity within the challenges and that is my definition of good fortune. I wish for myself as well as others that next year’s opportunities and challenges will continue to yield great rewards.
