  • 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

Notice the expression on Arlo's face in the photo of him and the hogs? The two other random kids have a look of shock, awe and fear (as I did, with the size of those animals) while Arlo turned up on the other side of the fenced pen looking ready to jump right in. And, that's blueberry pie cone on his face with his brothers...all with new fair shirts.


Love the photo of the three guys with Arlo wearing his new shirt. I will have to call them to hear all about the Fair.


Great photos!! I can't wait to bring Leo and Kai up there to visit. I want to move to the country now so want them to get a taste!
