The Orchard House: Little Women 1868

Christmas won't be Christmas without any presents, grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.It's so dreadful to be poor! sighed Meg, looking down at her old dress.

I don't think it's fair for some girls to have plenty of pretty things, and other girls nothing at all, added little Amy, with an injured sniff.  We've got Father and Mother, and each other, said Beth contentedly from her corner.

The four young faces on which the firelight shone brightened at the cheerful words, but darkened again as Jo said sadly, We haven't got Father, and shall not have him for a long time. She didn't say perhaps never, but each silently added it, thinking of Father far away, where the fighting was.

The Garden of the Mind's Eye

"From December to March, there are for many of us three gardens - 
the garden outdoors, 
the garden of pots and bowls in the house, 
and the garden of the mind's eye."

All Star

And He Grew

and grew strong as a boy

must grow who does not  know

that he is learning any lessons, and

who has nothing in the world to

think except things to eat

Pauper's Cemetery

Emily Dickinson's - I'm Nobody!  Who are you?

I'm Nobody!  Who are you?
Are you -- Nobody -- Too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell!  they'd advertise -- you know!

How dreary -- to be -- Somebody!
How public -- like a Frog --
To tell one's name -- the livelong June --
To an admiring Bog!


"It's Not About Death.  It's About Living"  Corin White "the Gravestomper"

"How beautiful is youth! How bright if gleams ..." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"How beautiful is youth!
How bright it gleams with its illusions, aspirations, dreams!
Book of Beginnings,
Story without End,
Each maid a heroine, and each man a friend!"

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


"I live in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind."

The Lockless Door: Robert Frost

It went many years,
But at last came a knock,
And I though of the door
With no lock to lock.

I blew out the light,
I tip-toed the floor,
And raised both hands
In prayer to the door.

But the knock came again.
My window was wide;
I climbed on the sill
And descended outside.

Back over the sill
I bade a 'Come in'
To whatever the knock
At the door may have been.

So at a knock
I emptied my cage
To hide in the world
And alter with age.

The Lockless Door by Robert Frost
