Thanks, again.

It’s happening. The Sunday paper is heavier with every week closer to Christmas. If you’re not careful, those flyers and advertisements will spill onto the floor before you can even reach your reading chair. And so, to give us a little break from what surely are lovely and alluring advertising spreads, I offer a quote from Robinson Crusoe:

“All our discontents about what we want appeared to me to spring from the want of thankfulness for what we have.”

Oh, Daniel Defoe, thank you for the wisdom of that one sentence.

Defoe, Daniel. Robinson Crusoe. (originally published in 1719), New York: Bantam Books, 1981.

I'd love to hear from you!
