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.

What I Heard

...from Claire this morning.

"Momma, some people are mean. And some people aren't mean."
"That's true honey."
"Yea, and some people have cars and some don't."
"That's also true."
****Silence for a few seconds****
"Momma, I wish I was a ghost."

I have no idea.
