Fettucini in Sausage Bolognese, And The Importance Of Being Both A Hungry Guest & A Good Host post image

We human beings are walking vessels of constant reception. We receive visuals of the extraordinary world around us with the wonderfully colorful eyes we've been given; we receive the various sounds of the spaces that surround us with the sometimes-funny-looking and shapely ears we have attached to the sides of our heads; we receive fragrantly sweet, fresh, pungent or even repelling scents with our uniquely sculpted noses, and we receive the sensation of the feel of our world through touch, with our skin.

Decadent food is so much a part of the Thanksgiving holiday that to try to prepare too “healthy” a spread would most likely result in a frustrated and disappointed table of guests, and who would want that? Not I, for one. So let's just agree right off the bat that with this post, we're not going to be talking about how to “lighten up” this much delighted in and celebrated holiday meal.

From time to time, life needs to be shaken up just a little to keep things fresh and moving in a forward direction; to keep the circulation strong so that stagnation doesn't set in in various areas.

It kind of makes me chuckle, but fall brings out the “eager participant” in me. It’s not that I’m otherwise antisocial, per se; I’m just typically not the biggest fan of large crowds, or going to gatherings where people get packed-in together like sardines in a tin can. For some mystical reason, as the cooler seasons move in, I actually start to crave the opportunities for my family and I to gather together with others of a similar mindset; others that simply have a spirit to ... {more please!}
