Thank you Bill – a beautifully expressed post – no need to say any more – this says it all.
Cheers – Jenny
I actually do in funny little ways a lot of the time. At the yoga school I go to we have a healing ceremony every Saturday and when I participate I think of people close to me, whether they’re geographically close or not. I try to tell and show people how important they are to me and my wellbeing, emotionally and spiritually; I often comment to friends how lucky we are to have great friends like us (!) in our lives, and in a way the drinks party I have bi-yearly, is a way of connecting with many of the people from the many parts of my life to show they’re important to me. If you can’t say it out loud that you love people, there are many ways to show it!

Sorry, Bill — though as a person you’re at least two heads higher in my esteem than any other Australian film director, including in the heat of your personal spirituality, from an artistic point of view Luhrmann has no competition 🙂
What a wonderful post. An Australian film director reminding us all not to take our US holiday for granted. We have so much to be thankful for. Among many other things, I am thankful for all of my new friends that my friend Bill Bennett has brought into my life. Thank you pgs family for being who you are. Like any family, we may not always agree, but we can always love and respect each other.
With thankfulness, Steve
And I’m thankful I got to spend Thanksgiving with Steve. Eat your hearts out, folks. 🙂
Love this post, Bill! I am thankful for you, Jen, and all the other wonderful folks who follow this blog. Julie
