  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

That was beautiful!!!


That was so sweet! I loved seeing you and your Dad dancing at your wedding.

Aunt Heidi

I just went looking for the DVD of LDD ... perfect for these winter blues... Can't believe Bridget is leaving for college this fall. I get emotional thinking about my little girl going out to the world. I going to miss her so much, but am still excited for her. She's more than I and Tim could have ever hoped for. The boys', though taller than me, will always be the little boys playing wiffle ball and water games at camp with their cousins. Thank goodness for camp! I know the grandkids' will have a place to retreat with Mom & Dad from the crazy 'lazy' world...and hopefully bringing their future 'crazy,
lazy' families...

ps.. the original 'crazy, lazy' families have dibbs.


I can't believe Bridget is going to college, either Heidi. They are all growing up so fast, it's so fun to watch that video and see them as little ones again.

"The original crazy, lazy families" - I love that! Yes, we should have dibbs!
