  • 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

Those are such cute paper mache creations! It is really fun and easy, huh? Glad you guys are having fun. Cole is inspired by your creations and we may be doing a paper mache pinata for his birthday!!


Great job with the paper mache! Love the globe and the puffer fish.


Very awesome. Love the fish and sea turtle. pops


Did you just add the sea turtle? It looks just like our sea turtle at the Aquarium.


Mark - Levi is wondering what you have against his Planet Earth? We moved Australia to the correct ocean.

We just finished the sea turtle, so I added it today when I put up our pinata photos for Cole. We love the sea turtle!

I love the concentration of the artist in the last picture. You can tell he's a perfectionist. We'll have to display them in the 'Lazy Gallery'.
