an unsettling holiday

November 25, 2006

Thanksgiving has been a bit odd this year. While I’ve loved seeing my family and spending time with them, I’ve had a few too many conversations with family members that leave me feeling uneasy about the future. For some of my relatives, now is a time of new and good things. For others, though, it is a time for leaps of faith, the kind of leaps that, when I was younger, I always assumed would turn out Just Fine for everyone. A little age, it seems, ruins a lot of youthful assumptions, and a little perspective means I’ll worry more than I ever knew was necessary before.
