Tomorrow the Turkey is supreme bird by virtue of appearing on tables
more than any other . A turkey is a delicious meal, but it is also a noble creature when one sees it wild in the woodlands. We can be thankful for the taste of it, but when we see it through a smattering of snowflakes racing over the hill we are thankful for the sight of it. The turkeys crammed together in the local turkey farm deny it the beauty of the chase by the winds along the edges of our sight.
I will be eating turkey. Tomorrow the consumption is almost tribal.
But other days the thanks I give is for the turkey living. It is a bird that we can honor.
