I'm a little too peevish and petulant this year to go about any enumeration of things for which I am thankful in a proper manner.

I often feel alienated from people, in general and in specific, and this month, post-election, more than ever. What I am most thankful for today is having friends whose presence ameliorates and banishes that feeling. Ironically, they're the ones who come right out and call me a freak. I much prefer the label to a blank, uncomprehending stare, or my own split-second mental wrestling match with futility as I try to frame an answer to a perfectly friendly question.

Yes - I'm thankful there are still humans from whom I don't feel alienated. I'm mildly chagrined that's the extent of what I can manage, but that's the disease and the damage.
