K. Rowling July/Adventure: Life itself is the proper binge. --Julia Child August/Freedom: Freedom is from within. --Frank Lloyd Wright September/Purpose: The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause. --Mark Twain October/Fulfillment: Ah! There's nothing like staying home for real comfort. --Jane Austen November/Wisdom: Sleep is the best meditation. --The Dalai Lama December/Faith: Peace is always beautiful. --Walt Whitman As poet John Keats wrote, A thing of beauty is a joy forever, and readers will turn to Daily Joy year after year to find wonder, awe, and happiness in the world around them.
