“Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Mommy is off to Alaska with Lapdaddy for their anniversary holiday on a big ship....this is the most wonderful send off here today. Mommy can feel the energy of the artwork and it is calming her frazzeled nerve endings. Thank you for your lovely friendship and don't forget us...we love you dear Dutchess and Miss Mousie!

I love the work of Emerson and this quote in particular. I have been on hiatus over the summer caring for sons and I love the rich colour of your blog. It is beautiful!
