  • 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

You guys are having a beautiful autumn! I am so happy that you are feeling better...and blogging again! That spice cake looks delicious, wanna share the recipe?
I am envious of your homeschool connections there. We are feeling a little isolated lately.
We are going to try chicken feather writing this afternoon, thanks for the inspiration, Levi!


I will share that recipe Deb, just have to track it down in my post-move mess!

We do have a really large, active unschooling community in Portland and the boys have found a few close friends, were really lucky.  I hope you all find some peeps soon!  At least you can get an occasional fix of Durango friends!


How long was that nap?
