Improve attitude with gratitude, James Taylor tells fans

WASHINGTON, Mass. (AP) " James Taylor has a Thanksgiving message for his fans: Gratitude improves your attitude.

The singer says in an email that giving thanks is the key to overcoming setbacks and dealing with reversals of fortune.

He writes: "To whom we give it is a big question but just go ahead on and do it. Gratitude is the way to an improved attitude, dude."

Taylor then gets a little spacey in Thursday's message, speculating about the possibility that other distant worlds in the cosmos might support life.

The 68-year-old musician, who lives in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, ends by saying: "To have been born in human form and consciousness aboard this unbelievably beneficent planet is an incredible stroke of luck. Dig it."
