I'll be eating turkey tomorrow in celebration of that great American holiday that makes us fatter than we already are: Thanksgiving. So, find above, offered up for your consideration a different kind of "map". One that runs in the background during everyday life, but becomes prominent after a disaster. It's also one that's probably worthy of reflection while sitting on the couch, watching football, and digesting copious amounts of bird topped off by two slices of pie à la mode. More exactly, if you should find yourself lucky enough to be in that position, consideration of all those things in the human condition that have gone right to make it possible is probably in order. A thought which is more commonly known as - giving thanks. For a bit more on this type of mapping, use the links below:
