Think of All The Beauty


“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.”

Longfellow And I



“Softly the evening came.
The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden wand o’er the landscape;
Twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch,
and melted and mingled together.”

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

My Son

“If you can fill the unforgiving minute / With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, / Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, / And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!”

Rudyard Kipling

Just living is not enough…
one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
