Stoner Thanksgiving message

Pending your personal beliefs on reincarnation of course, does it ever unnerve you to think that you could have been born in a pre-Gutenberg universe where the only books you saw were held by monks, not as if you could even read them, and so you would see books as not just metaphorically a sacred object but as literally a sacred object as well, something you could never touch let alone own, and which you were lucky even to see at all and had no thought of understanding?

I've been taking too many Vitamin C drops, but for living in a time when printed books are plentiful, cheap and endowed with cultural value,

I am profoundly grateful this Thanksgiving Day.
