I don't know how prevalent in the world the
celebration of Thanksgiving is, I think it
has more to do with the colony of Jamestown
here in the U.S. But regardless I think that
holidays like this — or Christmas — are times
that we especially try to live in peace with
the world and in our hearts for a day.

So to all out there on the web, regardless of
where you live, and especially to all of my Opera
friends here, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
I hope that all your stomachs will be full, that
you'll have some good sports to watch on television,
and that you are surrounded by people who you love.
