  • 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

Such a great idea...I really like it. See you soon Cricket.


I can't wait for Cricket either!!!! Not to diminish the very important event of Levi's 5th birthday of course. I got so excited looking at the chain and seeing how close it really is. I hope you can bring the baby to Baltimore this spring!


I love Winter lights!


This is just great Michelle! Somehow I missed this post and am just now reading it. The tree is beautiful and I AGREE with Si, that chain should not be destroyed. In fact, it is my suggestion that it should be hung somewhere in the house...near Cricket when she (he?) arrives! What a beautiful way to countdown the day. I think you can get a countdown gadget for your blog, so we can all keep up with you!
