To ponder . . .

I want to share a quote that Becky used on her blog, Whymiscal Musings. (Thanks Becky for letting me borrow it)

"William Henry Channing's Symphony"
by Arthur Brisbane

To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common-- this is my symphony.

Sounds like you had a great time.

I LOVE this quote. I'm copying it into my quote book right now.
