  • 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

Thanks for the chick update! I knew they would be big, but had no idea they would be as large as they are. Silas you have such a sense of style, love the hat. Levi, I'll have to have your photo enlarged, again you are just so cute!
Aunt Suz is very excited about seeing you all tomorrow. Sure wish she could pack me in her bag. Our new computer has arrived, watch out, we may be skyping you very soon!


Love the chick pics! Camp looked at Silas and said, "He lost some toofs."
Our boys have chicks in Texas too and my Dad says that Cody's is starting to make some pitiful crowing IS a rooster!


Oh no!  Will your Dad let a rooster stick around?  We arent allowed to have roosters in the city, so ours will have to find a new home or a stew pot if she turns out to be one.

Tell Camp that Silas did indeed lose some toofs!  He lost his two front teeth earlier this summer and new ones are just starting to grow in.
