Quotes

  • 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

Silas has been asking me to teach him to weld for several years now...Tiny jumped in on the lesson. They both did great, and no injuries.

Nana

Now I not only have to worry about my son welding, I have to worry about Silas and Levi also. Wouldn't it be safer if they both just stuck to fly fishing?

Lisa

Yay for Silas all decked out in safety gear! Looks like a real pro!

Michelle

Nenny,  We wear safety glasses, gloves and outfits, so even if a spark touches us it doesnt hurt.  And we watch out for our hair but putting it under a hat.  It is safe and fun.  I did some more welding today, helping Papa with his flower petals.  Silas

Michelle

Thanks Lisa, Silas is very into it right now and I think he likes the outfit that goes along with it.

Nana

Well Silas, I feel much better since you have reassured me that you are being very careful and safe. I just remember seeing all the burn holes in your Papa's shirts and pants. Are you and Papa making a sunflower to go in the yard?

Michelle

Nenny,

It is hanging up on the side of our house now.  It is a sunflower but I really think it looks like a sun.  You can see it on the blog soon.  Silas

Mark

All those late nights of playing with molten candle wax has payed off. Levi is the best 4 year old weldor I've ever met, and Silas is a natural with the torch and pushing around a puddle.

Michelle

Yes, I should have mentioned that you had some help on your project from the little welders.  I dont understand your pushing around a puddle reference though. ?

Mark

it's a welding thing.
