" Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. "

--Nathaniel Hawthorne... a link !!!

More from Nathaniel Hawthorne:

" Generosity is the flower of justice. "

" We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream; it may be so the moment after death. "

" Sunlight is painting. "

" Moonlight is sculpture. "

" Our Creator would never have made such lovely days, and have given us the deep hearts to enjoy them, above and beyond all thought, unless we were meant to be immortal. "

... Amen !!! I've only read his " The Scarlet Letter " once, and that was in high school or college many years ago.

David, my grandson, to the hospital late Tuesday night. Gail and Chrissy and David returned about 3:00 a.m. Wednesday morning. I stayed up waiting for them, soooooooo... I'm a bit slow, as everyone else is, today. Appears to be tonsillitis, maybe strep. He's home from school but appears far from sick with his usual rambunctiousness, except for his terrible coughing. Chrissy worked half a day to be able to give Gail some surcease... the two words that have links ( underlined ) in this paragraph DEFINITELY apply !!!

Hope you like the new look of the BLOG... the aesthetic wave continues to evolve as my skills increase. I've used some simple HTML tables... I want to upgrade to CSS tables in the near future for more flexibility. This format creates way too much spacing that CSS may cure.

Weather Tuesday and Wednesday hot and breezy... allergy weather !!!

Elders Talbot and Green stopped by for a quick visit Tuesday night, making their rounds.

Remembered my two brothers will be driving down for Mandy's wedding from the Pacific Northwest. Jim, the elder of the two and my junior by just short of thirteen months, will be bringing his significant other, Pam, as well. Looks like all five of the Nichols' siblings will be in attendance, Debi and Peg already living in the area... cool !!!

E-mails from sister Peg... something about M&M's and getting cancer or something if you're on fire in New York. Maybe I'd better read them again.

$ 9.99 USD per day special... oooooooook ! Maybe they just want to make sure the extra insurance that isn't mentioned is covered ?, or something. Borrowing $ 100.00 USD from Gail to to help cover until the deposit is re-credited... and she's borrowing against her car insurance money... sheeesh !

My entries... " Poetry in Motion" daily contest:

Night Golf

Thoughts deep in

the moonlight

Only stones

found beneath

Where lies the

white dimpled ball ?

Probing the lilac

A butterfly's proboscis

Seeking nectar sweet

" Night Golf  "... a whimsy.

" Butterfly "... a Haiku: Butterfly: mariposa... papillon... Schmetterling - these I knew ( except I thought 'papillon' ( French ) had a double "p" and 'Schmetterling' ( German ) ended in "k"... 'mariposa' being Spanish... all for "Butterfly". Also: 'borboleta' in Portuguese and 'vlinder' in Dutch according to the cyrillic and oriental languages would not render well for some reason from the site, maybe the Microsoft language modules aren't loaded on my computer... or something. As for my lilacs... they've long since lost their bloom, sigh.

Sayonara !!!
