Photo_112405_010Last night I wandered the streets of downtown San Francisco for a few hours to check out the holiday scene. It seemed that every establishment fit one of three scenarios:

  1. It was closed.
  2. It was whole-heartedly embracing Thanksgiving with a full turkey dinner for clientele.
  3. It was open, but pretending the holiday didn’t exist.

  1. They were asleep.
  2. They were whole-heartedly embracing the holiday with a glass of wine in hand and large group of family members nearby.
  3. They were pretending the holiday didn’t exist.

When it started to rain, I thought of my New England family, and how they had just eaten turkey while watching the first snowfall of the year.
