200 Years of November ~

November 10, 2017

Back in time we shall go,

to gather wisdom from Almanacs of long ago. 

For two hundred years the attention in November,

has centered on preparation for the onset of winter.

We'll learn about character and the philosophy of the day,

as well as how the time they did while away . . .

 

 

MARRIAGE ~

"There is no union, the quality of which is so intimate,

the obligation of which is so binding,

the consequences of which are so momentous."

 

 

 

~ William Jay
