Three cheers for the Internet
, for the Web
, for visionaries
, and for geeks coding away in the night
. Three cheers for friendly writers
, and cranky ones
too. Three cheers for the Republic
, and for its framers
, and for its defenders,
, all kinds
. Three cheers for the kindness of strangers to visiting guests
, and respect to the sometimes tragic costs
. Three cheers for people who keep trying
, for people who never give up
, and for people who catch their breath and start again.
Three cheers to matter and energy
, to Golden Bears and Glorious Bells,
to learning on a beautiful hillside. Three cheers for being curious and loud.
Three cheers for all kinds of wonderful
, fabulous friends
, both seen and unseen
, who read
, leave comments
, and otherwise entertain
, comfort and inspire
. Three cheers for dance
. Three cheers for the Bay.
Three cheers for a most loving family
, and many more for transmitters of that Splendor of which this is all but a spark. Thanks all, and thanks for reading! Happy Thanksgiving.
