So, here we are in the middle of February....just about everyone I know is down or sick....the world around us seems to be crumbling and everyone is worried about their future. I'm trying to remember that after every winter there is a Spring..... a re-birth, full of promise and renewed energy. Here are some pictures I took last spring to cheer us all.......and then of course there is the garage that is waiting for spring cleaning! (It's been waiting a long, long time)!
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.
