Thanks to you it will be done, for you to me are the only one
Happiness, no more sad, happiness... I'm glad,

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you
Mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.

Led Zeppelin, "Thank You."

I am thankful for:

-My family. My parents did an amazing job.

-My friends, Bells, Alicia, Tony, Alison, Dan, Dawn, Will, Twink, Antwaan, UJ, Amy, Z Dawg, Blain, Carp, Chuck, Romano, Doug, Whit, Ashton, Demi, Eck, Jimmyboy, Jimmy D, TLN, Quagmire, Husker, the Wave and about a hundred more... this list is only the people I have heard from in the last couple weeks.

-Getting to live where people take vacations.

-Doodlebug, Puck, Barney and Buddy.

-The 15 years spent with India. I am better for it. I love you.

-Lucy, Katie, Joey, Aden, JM, Birdy, Vaughn, Kenna & Connor.

-My friends in California, who showed me a great time while I was there.

-The opportunity to play music.

-The fact that Big Sky is right down the road. (Even if mother nature decided to give us 60 degree days, resulting in the announcement yesterday that they are postponing opening day for another week.)

-The as-yet-to-materialize series of winter storms that will drop another 500 inches on Big Sky this season.

-My health.

-My charmed life.

-HBO, for the Sopranos, Deadwood, Six Feet Under, The Wire and Rome.

-The Dam, for being so good to me.

-The Gallatin River.

-Grizzly Bears.


-The Native West Slope Cutthroat Trout.


-Southwestern Montana.

-This coming winter.

-Montana sunsets.

-KG, of Tenacious D, for being nice enough to take a picture.

-Pearl Jam, for still knocking it out.

-That Freedom of Expression Is A Fundamental and Inalienable Right in this Country. Without which, The Dude Abides could not exist.

I am thankful not only to be writing this blog and enjoying it so much, but even more so for the fact that people actually read this.


And that is just some of what I am thankful for. The last 17 months have been to most incredible, moving experience in my life.

As I mentioned, I have led a charmed life.

Luckiest guy I know.

I am thankful for it.

Thanks for reading.

Love you guys, and Happy Thanksgiving.

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places
Worn out faces

Bright and early for the daily races

Going nowhere

Going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses

No expression

No expression

Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow

No tomorrow

No tomorrow

^^Me & KG, from Tenacious D. Told him all about the Mitten. (Kidding.)

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take

When people run in circles

It's a very very

Mad world

Mad world
