Director's Take

Dear Friend of Downtown,

Thanksgiving week is my favorite holiday. It’s the one holiday that asks you to consider gratefulness, and to give thanks… but doesn’t require presents or consumerism. Where we think of our lives, and even where there is heartache or injustice or discontent, that we take stock and see the good. It just feels like goodness.
I see Thanksgiving as an opportunity to give – our time and attention to our families, to our community, and to each other. All with no expectation of receiving. Can we be so selfless to create that goodness for others and for our larger community?
I am always grateful for new perspectives, for new encounters, and for new epiphanies… Thanksgiving is the holiday we all need to remind us to take a beat, look around, and consider how we can be and do better.
My hope for all of us as we kick off this holiday season is that we get out of our routines and experience joy with each other, try something new, and give thanks for living at this time in this place.
From my home to yours. <3
