  • 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

The photo of Si up on the mountain is beautiful. Is that looking toward the White Mountains? The colors are so vivid. Silas, I absolutely love your new chickens. If I could have chickens, I would have a Black Silkie Bearded Bantam. Sounds like you all had a great day. Happy Birthday again Silas!


What a beautiful Day!! What a beautiful life!!

Aunt Suz

looks like the perfect birthday to me! Silas you have always been the chicken whisperer ever since your chicken in Durango came inside to have books read to it! What a beautiful place you all live. didn't realize you had apple trees too!


How funny, we dont even remember a chicken coming in to have books read to it, it must have been Little Silas. Thanks for sharing that memory!
