Happy Thanksgiving!

Recommended Posts

Can't find many apt scenes in my collection of mostly Russian postcards but this one, from a specially produced and released fund-raising series of Red Cross cards from St. Petersburg featuring THE SEASONS, as painted by Konstantin Somov, of autumn might say HAPPY THANKSGIVING in its Francophilic Russian way.

Very nice autumn, but not too much like Thanksgiving as we know it, since I just went to the Macy's Parade, which is so Dada a l'americaine with the giant balloons between the sharp edges. It's quite amazing visually if you find the right perch--which is 33rd just below Macy's, because you see up 10 blocks and only the high-flying balloons, which don't seem to be moving. Very hypnotic, because they seem fixed there in this new unnatural environment. Only 2nd time I saw it.
