It’s Thanksgiving.

It’s a time to reflect on the gifts we’ve received from Earth, Sky, Water, Sun and Darkness. It’s a time to acknowledge in our minds and hearts the gifts we’ve received from individuals, groups, communities, organizations and governments.  It’s a time to acknowledge plants, animals and all living beings who give to us with their spirits, their lives, their beauty, their energies and life force to maintain this planet and all who live here.

Think about it.  Loneliness and sense of isolation exists when you suffer from an eating disorder.  Bingeing on food or obsessing on being as small as possible by not eating are ways of addressing a deprivation.  Could one of your deprivations be touch?        *photo
