For the Glory of the Skies

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where Canadians and Americans diverge. That’s a good thing in my mind. We can do more than one Thanksgiving a year: The world is not suffering from an excess of gratitude.

I get a kick out of American commentary on Canadian Thanksgiving. It seems that they’re less surprised about it being in a different month (The Great White North, don’t you know?) than about it being on a different day of the week.

What’s with that?

I get it: we all have our own traditions. Mine excludes sweet-potato-&-marshmallow casserole (pie?), but includes something on the blog to note the occasion (For, For Again).

This year, I decided to do something sparked by a recent sunset cruise. This week, I learned that my video-editing software has built-in slideshow applications. Being a little pushed for time, I decided to give it a try. Here’s the result. Happy Thanksgiving.

    A beautiful video, Isabel. Thanks.

      Tom – I and the programmer at CyberLink thank you. 🙂 Seriously, I was blown away by thinking about how long it would have taken me to even approximate what the packaged program was set up to do. I would still have been at it next Thanksgiving, I expect.

  2. A sunset like the one you have memorialized here gives meaning to the Biblical phrase “from glory unto glory.” Thank you for your inspirational video, and I mean the artwork shortcut, too. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thank you for such an inspirational video. Makes me want to go on the cruise, also, just to experience such views of sunset.

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Judith – 🙂 It’s a pretty accessible cruise. You just need a friend with a cottage on a Shield lake, and a pontoon boat.

    you definitely capture some of the beauty of the sky

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Barry – 🙂 I wonder if pilots have made any videos of the sky? They’d have a special perspective, for sure.
