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.

Milestones

Lots of milestones being reached in our house lately.
Today, I turn forty.
Last night, Rob introduced Sam to the 'pull my finger' trick.
I'm not sure who was more amused, Father or son?
