A Tisket A Tasket

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






camaraderie


WONDER





going SOLO



or pairing up with someone COMPLETELY THE OpPOsItE?



Is it work



play



quiet solitude for artistic achievements



nature



or the NEED to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX?


Whatever it is, HARVEST the benefits of

The GRAND Essentials of Life according to Joseph Addison:

HAPPINESS


SOMETHING TO DO


SOMETHING TO LOVE


AND SOMETHING TO HOPE FOR



FILL your autumn basket and may it OverFlow



like the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH ~
