'it came into him life; it went out from him truth.
it came to him short-lived actions; it went from him poetry.
it was a dead fact; now, it is quick thought.
it can stand, and it can go.
it now endures, it now flies, it now inspires.
precisely in proportion to the depth of mind
from which it issued,
so high does it soar, so long does it live.'
~ ralph waldo emerson
and on a lighter note,
it's snowing again!
last night alex was playing with an eraser and he made
a happy ice cube
a sad rain drop
and an angry puddle
his little ritual to the snow gods worked i guess!! this past week all but melted the piles from the blizzard... expected to get 10-14" with this one... hoping my brother will get in from san diego tomorrow morning ok...
and i had just packed up the snow pants, boots, etc that had been living in my foyer since december! i think my neighbors would prefer i take my snowflake lightups from the windows, there is talk that this is all my fault! i figured they could hang around until 2.28...
