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.

Yep, He's Funny

This afternoon we got in the car to go pick up the girls from school and the radio was on. One commercial was finishing up and then a Gieco commercial came on with bad news.
There is no money tree.
And there is no pot of gold at the end of a rainbow either.
From the back seat I hear Sam,
"What?!"
Total disbelief.
