Happy Thanksgiving. Let us give thanks for all that we have and reflect on the good things that have happened throughout the past year. As we enter into the frenzy of the upcoming month, let us pause today and find a way to enjoy a day with as little consumerism as possible. We took the above photo, at Anthropologie in Friendly Center six years ago, probably about the time that Anthro was just getting established in Greensboro. While the photo is old, the message is still fitting. We're glad we at Greensboro Daily Photo are here to bring you a photo a day of our great city. We're glad that we are in North Carolina on Thanksgiving and not having to travel. Can you see the outline of the state of North Carolina in the window? We're glad we can call North Carolina home.
If you want to hold out on the consumerism a little longer, tomorrow, on Black Friday, there will be a Really, Really Free Market at the corner of Grove Street and Glenwood Avenue in the heart of the Glenwood neighborhood of Greensboro. Greensboro's own Kathy Clark will be hosting this event, where you can bring things to give away, you can take things that you want or want to give as a gift. You can learn how to make gifts for people. What you CAN'T do is spend money, as there will be nothing to buy and you are under no obligation to trade things. Even if you are going to "cheat" and do some shopping, consider stopping by between the hours of 11:00 am and 3:00 pm to cheer Kathy on with this great undertaking.
We're glad people like Kathy Clark are around to help us gather and enjoy each other's company without having to spend money. Finally, we're super thankful that you are reading our blog. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at GDP!
