Quote on books

The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch it from our neighbours, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all.–Voltaire, philosopher and writer (1694- 1778)

steppin’ on my “soapbox”

I got an email saying something to the effect that the person was sorry to hear that a Christian was battling depression. Maybe they didn’t mean it the way I am taking it, but in essence it sounds as though they think Christians shouldn’t get depressed. Hmmm.

I’m rushing around packing, and asked the kids to pack their own “pack-packs,” which is Jonathan-ese for backpack. I just got a moment to sit down and see what they packed in their bags…

y’all may have noticed I’m not blogging much. Well, I’m blogging, but I’m not saying much when I blog. I’m using others’ words or am writing short concise entries. I mentioned a while back that I’m an onion.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep.–Robert Frost, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”

The trouble is that most people think that writers are only at work when they have a pen in their hands or they’re sitting at a word processor but it isn’t true. It goes on and on in their minds and they become withdrawn and preoccupied and touchy if they’re distracted. ~ Marcia Willett from A Week In Winter

I could sit here all day…

waiting for inspiration, but I doubt that there is any other way to say it.
Natalie and Wes were married ten years ago today in Las Vegas.

I’ve seen this before

…but it seemed very appropriate after I spent a day hustling…
“Mother, oh Mother, come shake out your cloth
empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
hang out the washing and butter the bread,
sew on a button and make up a bed.
Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
She’s up in the nursery, blissfully rocking.
Oh, I’ve grown shiftless as Little Boy Blue
(lullaby, rock-a-bye, lullaby loo).
Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
(pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peek-a-boo).
The shopping’s not done and there’s nothing for stew
and out in the yard there’s a hullabaloo
but I’m playing Kanga and this is my Roo.
Look! Aren’t his eyes the most wonderful hue?
(lullaby, rock-a-bye, lullaby loo).
The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
for children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs, Dust go to sleep.
I’m nursing my baby and babies don’t keep.”
by Ruth Hurlburt Hamilton
Thank you, Melissa, for the reminder.
