The world is full of happiness, and plenty to go round, if you are only willing to take the kind that comes your way. ~ Jean Webster, Daddy-Long-Legs (Hodder & Stoughton, 1912)

It’s a good thing to have all the props pulled out from under us occasionally. It gives us some sense of what is rock under our feet, and what is sand. ~ Madeleine L’Engle

In the spring of 1988, I returned to New Orleans, and as soon as I smelled the air, I knew I was home.  It was rich, almost sweet, like the scent of jasmine and roses around our old courtyard.  I walked the streets, savoring that long lost perfume. ~ Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire

I don’t just wish you rain, Beloved – I wish you the beauty of storms… ~ John Geddes, A Familiar Rain

Well if you ever plan to motor west
Just take my way that’s the highway that’s the best
Get your kicks on Route 66.

Well it winds from Chicago to L.A.
More than 2000 miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well, goes from St. Louie down to Missouri
Oklahoma city looks oh so pretty
You’ll see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona don’t forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

Would you get hip to this kindly tip
And go take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66!

~ Bobby Troupe, copyright 1946, Londontown Music

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls. ~ Mother Teresa

It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important. ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

The City Library, Salt Lake City, Utah – probably one of the coolest libraries I’ve been inside in a long time. Great library store, as well.

I’m in no way equipped with the proper equipment (or skill)  to capture skiers practicing aerial maneuvers into the pool at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City, UT.  But it was fun trying!
