  • 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

It's hard to believe this is March. It was very warm here also. I hope the weather holds for another week so we can enjoy the beach.
We love Arlo's evil eye, it really made us laugh, he is just too cute! Silas, you are now a member of the Polar Bear Club, I don't know how you were brave enough to dive into the 40 degree water.


Way to go Silas! You are a wild man!

Aunt Suz

holy cow Silas! I'm cold just watching you swim. You are so brave to dive in. And I love Arlo's evil eye. To me he looks like a perfect blend of Silas and Levi and the evil eye reminds me of Levi when he got the gunk tshirt! Happy March Birthdays.


That was awesome Silas! It reminded me of myself trying to get used to Long Pond and the ocean is a lot colder... Good for you!

Aunt Heidi


Love the evil eye....priceless!
