Feeling

Gratitude

And Not

Expressing It

Is Like

Wrapping A

Present

And Not

Giving It

Anyway, remember to change those clocks that don’t change themselves.

You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You’re on your own. And you know what you know.

And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

O suns and skies and clouds of June, 
And flowers of June together, 
Ye cannot rival for one hour 
October’s bright blue weather;

When loud the bumblebee makes haste, 
Belated, thriftless vagrant, 
And goldenrod is dying fast, 
And lanes with grapes are fragrant;

When gentians roll their fingers tight 
To save them for the morning, 
And chestnuts fall from satin burrs 
Without a sound of warning;

When on the ground red apples lie 
In piles like jewels shining, 
And redder still on old stone walls 
Are leaves of woodbine twining;

When all the lovely wayside things 
Their white-winged seeds are sowing, 
And in the fields still green and fair, 
Late aftermaths are growing;

When springs run low, and on the brooks, 
In idle golden freighting, 
Bright leaves sink noiseless in the hush 
Of woods, for winter waiting;

When comrades seek sweet country haunts, 
By twos and twos together, 
And count like misers, hour by hour, 
October’s bright blue weather.

O sun and skies and flowers of June, 
Count all your boasts together, 
Love loveth best of all the year 
October’s bright blue weather. 

Helen Hunt Jackson 

Hope your October will be lovely!

Alaska Siberia WWII Memorial

P1080711

The WWII memorial in Griffin Park in downtown Fairbanks honors the pilots who flew aircraft from the continental United States to Siberia via Alaska as part of the Lend-Lease program during World War II. The memorial inscription reads:

The structure of world peace cannot be the

work of one man, or one party, or one

nation…it must be a peace which rests on

the cooperative effort of the whole world.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, March 1, 1945

Address to Congress on the Yalta Conference
