Are You Getting Any Sunshine?
Browsing the shelves, I found several issues of Sunshine Magazine that I bought on eBay quite a few years ago. The pocket-sized magazine is filled with anecdotes and "happy" stories that you won't find on the six o'clock news these days. It was first published in Litchfield, Illinois, in 1924. Doing a bit of research, I think it continued into the '60's, though the place of publication changed to St. Louis. The booklet was called a "feel good" publication because the wit and wisdom of its contents put a smile on your face. No gloomy skies on its pages! It was a great read for all seasons.
So, what is bringing sunshine to your autumn? Perhaps, you snapped a pic of the grey skies ...a view that will not ever be the same because the clouds will never be poised in that exact place again. Or, you visited a small fall festival and sipped the best apple cider you've ever tasted! Or, you potted some pansies and hung them on your back porch? Or....you fill in the blanks!!! Just be sure that you're getting some sunshine each and every day!
