Montage Monday: It’s a Beautiful Day!

9 Feb

“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson, Collected Poems and Translations
Old Ralphie boy said it perfectly! Is it profane to call Emerson, “Ralphie?”
But, it is another beautiful day here in North Texas. If you’re here, I hope you enjoy this beautiful day. If you are someplace freezing cold with piles of snow, oops! Don’t be jealous, Spring is right around the corner. (Not, really. I was just trying to cheer you up.)

Here’s my week in a peek. And it’s only noon. A first for me. Usually I’m cranking this post out at 8pm. I want to go out and enjoy the day. Have a good one!




Montage Monday: A Week in a Peek

26 Nov

“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Kennedy, Camelot and candles in the wind sum up an interesting week. Faith, friends and fun gets me through each day. Alliteration is always helpful. A week in a peek.
