To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
~William Henry Channing

Sarah Vaughan...
laughter...
pork chops and sweet potatoes...
silly stories...
Dizzy Gillespie...
sweet looks...
a wink and a smile...
clang of dishes...
Charlie Parker...
clink of silverware...
dinner at our house
