There is no smell of cooking in the house. The TV is not on. The house is quiet. This is very unusual for me … it is Thanksgiving Day, after all. I should be cooking (in the past, I would already have the baking done). Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade should be on. But things have changed … yes, things have changed. The parade is not what it once was … I am sure that it is what it needs to be for its time, but I prefer the memories of a parade that, it seems, exists only in my mind.
