This Thursday will be Thanksgiving in the United States.
The things I’m most thankful for, that are closest to my heart, I’ll express thanks for among my family on that day. But a few lighthearted geology thanks seem appropriate here.
I’m thankful to live in an area with such beautiful and interesting geology.
I’m thankful for the incredible wealth of good writing on geology in New Mexico available from the New Mexico Geological Society and the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources. Most of this stuff is free and it’s excellent peer-reviewed stuff.
I’m thankful for good friends who share my interest, including Gary Stradling, Bruce Rabe, and pretty much the entire membership of the Los Alamos Geological Society.
I’m grateful for my regular readers here — both of them 🙂
I don’t actually know how many readers I have; I may be doing better than I think. If you’ve lurked here for a while, I’d be grateful if you’d just post a quick Hello.
I’m grateful for the relative prosperity I enjoy that gives me leisure to pursue this hobby, and for technology like my SPOT messenger that makes it safer.
