Since today is Thanksgiving here in the good ol’ US of A, like many others I’ve been musing over what I’m thankful for: my loving family, my good friends, my little apartment, simple pleasures like home cooked meals, the big beautiful outdoors in this fine state of Minnesota, and of course the marvels of modern technology, which allows me to access and research old films like never before. And speaking of the latter, I’m also very thankful for–you!
Recently I updated and tweaked the “My Articles” page (which I hadn’t done in–well, let’s just say an embarrassingly long time) and realized that Silent-ology is now over 300 articles strong. 300! And counting. And this is all due to you, reader, whose visits and comments and appreciation keep me excited and motivated to research this fascinating, one-of-a-kind era in art.
And so–thank you! Without you, this blog wouldn’t be what it is today. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing on this fine Thursday, just know that you are in my thoughts today. And it’s not only on Thanksgiving that I’m grateful.
I adore your blog, and you are a WordPress blessing!
Thank you, my friend! 🙂
Yes, there is *so* much for us to be thankful for. We all have a tendency sometimes to get so focused on what’s wrong that we fail to notice those showers of blessings all around us. That’s why it’s great to have a day gets us back in focus and gives us a special opportunity to give thanks for all those blessings—and you and the Silent-ology site definitely fall into that category, in a big way. 😉 Happy Thanksgiving, Lea!
Since I like reading about history so much, sometimes I can’t believe I live here and now, with all the abundance of technology/medicine/food/entertainment, etc. So much to be thankful for, indeed! Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you for providing a bright spot in my day with all your dedicated and passionate research!
What a lovely comment–thank you!
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Thank you for the insightful, well-written articles. You’ve reawakened my appreciation for silent movies, which started when my mom took me and my brothers to a showing of The Phantom of the Opera at the University of Minnesota, way back in the seventies. Cheers!
Cheers to you too, Brett! I appreciate your visits. I’m not too far from the U of M, actually (well, in Midwestern terms–it’s maybe a half hour drive 😀 ).
You have a wonderful blog Lea, It is always enjoyable and a pleasure to read it, keep up the great work.
Thank you so much! I appreciate it.
