To "Toilers of the Sea" and Tillers of the Soil .... Happy Thanksgiving

The painting by Albert Pinkham Ryder is a favorite of mine, suitable for a so called "Black Friday".  However, I find the vast moonlit sea space most beautiful, and was amazed to discover its actual tiny size at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Nonetheless, we send our Thanksgiving greetings and gratitude to all 'toilers of the sea" as well as  tillers of the soil!
