Brain Pickings

Thank You.

Pause for appreciation, or what your inner child has to do with B. B. King.

It’s Thanksgiving in the US and, wherever you are in the world, we’d simply like to thank you for your support, be that in the form of your continued readership, attention and love or the kind donations that are making Brain Pickings possible. For that, we say THANK YOU and smile.

Meanwhile, from our recent archives, here are three ways to celebrate gratitude:

  • An Awesome Book of Awesome Thanks! — from illustrator Dallas Clayton, an utterly delightful little book that will tickle your inner child awake.
  • The Moment Jars — this digital repository for people’s most monumental moments is a lovely record of gratitude and of being human.
  • On Gratitude — 51 moving micro-essays by famous writers, artists, musicians and other public figures, from B. B. King to Ann Rice to Francis Ford Coppola, who recount the things that make life worth living.

Enjoy your holiday if you’re celebrating or just take a moment to appreciate all that’s good in the world. And, once again, thank you.
