“And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees,
books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
~ William Shakespeare

At the End of the Day
“People have a lot of different beliefs, and at the end of the day,
we all have deeply held beliefs
that probably don’t make sense to anyone else.”
“I may not have gone where I intended to go,
but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”
~ Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul
That time of year we morn the passing,
delight in the beauty of the decay,
and hold a childlike sense of hope,
looking forward to the rebirth of spring.
