Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

May you all have a lovely day whether it be with family and friends, or if you choose to have a quiet day to yourself.

Here's Allison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma in a beautiful rendition of "Simple Gifts"

Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gain'd,
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come round right.

Simple Gifts was written by Shaker Elder Joseph Brackett, Jr. in 1848.
