FabulousFables.com wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving.
This year I am thankful for many things, and by many things I mean stories.
I am thankful that I can share my stories through FabulousFables.com.
I am thankful for stories in all their many forms: those passed down verbally through generations, newspaper articles, new stories, old stories, short stories, books, movies, television, true stories, fiction, fables.
Songs. The great storyteller songwriters. Willie Nelson. Johnny Cash. Dolly Parton. Sade. Bruce Springsteen. So many more.
I am thankful for the imagination of a child telling the first story. The recollections of an older couple at the Thanksgiving table.
Even gossip, that nasty habit, is the telling of stories.
I am thankful for the great works: The Bible. The timeless classics. The Outsiders. The Trilogy of the Rings.
The great story tellers: Charles Dickens. Stephen King. George Orwell. J.K. Rowling. There are too many to list here.
It is the story that sustains us.
The stories, regardless of genre, that reflect our world, our lives.
They are stories made of stardust.
So with great thankfulness and humility, FabulousFables.com offers you a Thanksgiving story: Gilbert the Dancing Hummingbird.
