I have had profound feelings of gratitude for the circumstances of my life, my parentage, the luck of having been born in the United States, and in the 20th Century. I do not discount my own will and energy in the good progress of my life. But I am still left with this great sense of gratitude. Yet HOW and TO WHOM do I take this gratitude? It seems to require a destination, and a vehicle of expression. It occurs to me that for all varieties of the faithful, gratitude is expressed in prayer routinely, to a god or the gods in particular. But for the non-believers among us, where do we take our gratitude? And how? I am wondering if others have felt this quandary?
