From George W. to Joseph B.

When not yet 16, George Washington copied 41 rules of civil behavior, (scroll down if  a list of site topics precede this), at least one of which, I violated Halloween Weekend. After a day that began early I nodded  off at night  during a top-drawer, well-staged & otherwise eye-popping theater performance. I woke quickly so it wasn’t a continuing violation. I offer the ideals our future first President took fountain pen to inkwell for, in hopes they are a timely diversion in this month of  dining & socializing & imbibing for Thanksgiving.    And I am thankful for being directed to them, by The Village Square.  (item #2) Continuing in a spirit of thankfulness I offer a bridge to structured versions of two of my favored anonymous ways of showing thankfulness, and also offer this kind group  , which codify some of the serendipity path- of- life ways to love neighbor, community & World.

ALSO – If you look for children’s books that aren’t of the November turkey- dinner fare variety,  please consider CIRCLE OF THANKS and SQUANTO’s JOURNEY, both from Joseph Bruchac.

Enjoy, be thankful.

  1. Darn it Jan! The link to George W’s rules of civil behavior didn’t work. I wanted to see what they were and whether we were observing any of them anymore. (I was, however, relieved to learn that the George W. I had in mind was not the one you had in mind),

  2. Can you try once more?
    The link is to Colonial Williamsburg – I should have said that! Then you scroll down past all the words in blue (patriotic blue) & you reach the manners list copied by President Washington.
    Thanks for writing!
