When Grandma Grace’s Thanksgiving bowl—used for holding the annual “I Am Thankful For” lists of the family—topples off the table after another successful Thanksgiving meal, it becomes a useful found object for all who encounter it. From one year to the next, the bowl makes its way upstream and downstream, through sandboxes and snowstorms, carrying goodwill and creative inspiration and teaching the true meaning of Thanksgiving to animals and humans alike.
