About Thanksgiving

This is not an easy time for all of us. But Thanksgiving is coming, and as I work on the holiday magazine and calendar (which will come out next week), I am thinking about the story of this holiday. We’ve kept the memory alive of a meeting between people around a table. It was not an easy meeting, and I wonder what they thought that day — Massasoit and his son, Metacomet, leaders among the Wampanoag, and their families, and the men and women who had landed on their shore.

Across the next week, the county will see concerts and harvest markets, art and films celebrating this time of year and the many people who live and make and grow in these hills. I am thankful for all of us.
