What's in YOUR autumn basket?
The chilly autumn air slows me down long enough to STOP, REFLECT and pose the question
WHAT KEEPS YOU YOUNG?
Is it a sense of AveNture
or pairing up with someone COMPLETELY THE OpPOsItE?
Is it work
quiet solitude for artistic achievements
or the NEED to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX?
Whatever it is, HARVEST the benefits of
The GRAND Essentials of Life according to Joseph Addison:
SOMETHING TO DO
SOMETHING TO LOVE
AND SOMETHING TO HOPE FOR
FILL your autumn basket and may it OverFlow
like the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH ~
