It’s Thanksgiving. I’m back in SoCal visiting my family and enjoying some time off from work, which frankly has been draining lately. I haven’t much to talk about today besides thanks to give: thanks to my family, friends, and teammates, to my teachers and mentors and everyone who’s helped me up, and to the communities that have accepted me and allowed me to grow into my own.

When we rise, it’s important to acknowledge those who brought us there. I invite you, too, to think about the people who created you, and contemplate.

Happy trails.
