A decluttering find of late is a memory card with some precious photos. I share some with you :-)


The Sea.

An everywhere of silver,
With ropes of sand
To keep it from effacing
The track called land.
-  Emily Dickinson


When you go ride,
Let me go run, 
You in the sun,
Me at your side...

...Let me do this,
Let me do that --
Where you are at,
That is my bliss.

Remembering Larky, Youngest Daughter's pet.


What are you able to build with your blocks?
Castles and palaces, temples and docks.
Rain may keep raining, and others go roam,
But I can be happy and building at home.

~ from Block City by Robert Louis Stevenson



It is a truth universally acknowledged, 
that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
~ Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

Second Daughter didn't really like the book, 
but conceded that literature is part of a real education.
