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

Just One

All I want is just one really good portrait of the kids. Oh, I know I have tons of them together but I'd really like one of everyone smiling happily (read naturally) and, this is the major issue, all looking at me. At least ones like this are still pretty cute.
