The cornucopia, that horn-shaped woven basket that graces our tables and entry ways during Thanksgiving, was in Greek mythology a magical horn that filled itself with whatever its owner requested. Now, we embrace this “cornu” horn + “copiae” of plenty as a symbol of abundance and gratitude. And we fill our baskets with the flora, fauna, and fruits in the colors and aromas of the fall season of harvest – reds of roses and cinnamon sticks, yellows and oranges of chrysanthemums and crackling wheat stalks, and pungent and silvery dried eucalyptus and magnolia leaves — that remind us to be grateful and thankful for the food we eat, for the love and friendship we share, for those who find their way, safely, to our table and for those who remain near only in our hearts.
