Steely Dan’s drug-influenced and quasi-prophetic song Black Friday loops through my head today. “When Black Friday comes,” sings Donald Fagin, “I’ll stand down by the door…I’ll collect everything I’m owed, and before my friends find out I’ll be on the road, When Black Friday falls.”
In Prepare Your Heart for a Great Christmas, we read:
Today I am grateful for this glimmer of light in the midst of darkness. I remember a truly Happy Thanksgiving Day, and look forward to time with my family today. My intentions are to be a joyous and loving presence in my family and to enjoy the day with them.
