I remember skating on the cement floor in our basement back in 1959 with a pair just like these! And I'm sure I had doll trunks like these beauties.....Paula found this early children's book when we were shopping together.... I think it was at Brimfield.....I loved it so much, she gave it to me for Christmas! I think it was the same red-letter day that I found the Buster Brown shoes......
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 study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
