Dan and I are back at the lake with my parents and sister Mary Beth and nephew Joe...
It promises to be another beautiful August day in the Adirondacks and I will be off treasure hunting bright and early Saturday morning!
I am headed toward Indian Lake and Blue Mountain Lake as the annual Antique Show is at the museum. I am not sure if I will make it to the actual show as the peripheral dealers who tailgate along the route usually keep me pretty entertained.
On the drive up Dan humored me and we stopped at one of my favorite antique cooperative shops ....
...I found a few things that tickled my fancy... oh, yes I did!
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.
