  • 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

Yum! You guys sure made me hungry for pizza. What a great idea. Maybe Mom could explain exactly how the oven worked. Levi, I love your shirt. Silas, great hat, is that the hat you wear for fly fishing? Happy Summer to you too!

Good grief - brilliant - did it really heat up the food?


Yes, Gwynneth, it really worked!  I didnt have a thermometer, but will get one for the next meal we cook in the oven, Id love to know what temperature it reached.

I attended my first ever solstice celebration -- what a great way to welcome summer by spending the evening outside in nature on the longest day of the year. I wondered how you guys were celebrating as you always do something special for the solstices. I'm so impressed with the pizzas.


Thanks Suz!  Happy summer!  Hope you had a great time at your celebration.


What a fortunate misunderstanding! I am happy that you celebrated the Solstice. Let's do something fun for the Equinox too!


That is sooo cool, or rather, deliciously toasty warm! Have a fabulous summer!
