It seems to me lately that there is a glimmer of a new understanding of the need for cooperation. Not only in business, but in every walk of life.

For a long time now, there has been a prevailing "it's all about me" attitude that has permeated business, government, politics and personal outlook. Without cooperation, little can be accomplished without the use of force.

So, this year, at the time of Thanksgiving, I am expressing gratitude, albeit somewhat in advance, for the idea that people worldwide will finally come to understand that they need to cooperate if we are to survive. This is certainly true in any business, woodworking or otherwise.

So here's to the hope that this is not simply wishful thinking. Have a great holiday!
