Keep Calm ...
This sounds like sound advice for the times we are living in right now. Things are all Topsy-turvy, upside-down and out of kilter. I was reminded of the message above while watching a PBS special about trains in the UK. One of the train stations now houses a used book store. While the owners were going through a box of books they purchased at auction, they found the original poster from WWII. The original had never been released to the general public. You can read and view a video about it at the Barter Books website.
Most simple day to day activities have a way of helping me to keep calm and carry on. Cooking, cleaning, gardening and volunteer work all provide that sense of purpose in my day. The changing seasons signal something new is ahead. Or maybe it's just that magical time of year, when the leaves change from green to gold and in the night sky the stars shine even brighter.
