My vacation in Florida has come to an end but it has been everything I hoped it would be.....relaxing....a break from the reality of everyday life, lots of visiting with my parents and in-laws and a chance to spend time with Dan....my son. I even was able to hunt and gather at the Webster Flea and some local yard sales....We spent one day visiting my nephew Mike at Universal Studios and one day at Ft. de Soto beach....a beautiful natural beach with lots of seashells and lovely pine trees to sit under. The collector in me could not resist picking up small shells to take home.....so perfect, so amazingly detailed.......I am so grateful for this respite and am sure it will hold me till spring!
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.
