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

Didja Know?

At four thirty in the morning a small yapping dog yelping a short distance away can sound just like a four year old sleeping across the house calling out for Momma?
Yea, neither did I.

Until this morning.

I did know this actually. And a yowling cat can sound like a baby crying. I hear these things in that place between asleep and awake...
Hope you got some rest after, my friend.:)
