Real Stars



"I should hardly admire more if real stars fell and lodged on my coat."

Henry David Thoreau

  1. I love your photo, it's as cute as it can be. The Thoreau quote is quite apt, isn't it? I've always been fascinate by Thoreau's writings, he had a true sense of mindfulness about the world around him, in front of him, and in the moment. I find that celebratory and it fills me with joy.

  12. Hoping you are enjoying the holiday season and just about all ready for Christmas. I had to laugh seeing your snowman, he looks an awful lot like one of mine, but that shouldn't be a surprise
