Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father.

Lydia Maria Child quote

We can’t be lovers because we both have mustaches. But since you’re a lady, and I’m a gentleman, I’ll shave mine off.

If months were marked by colors, November in New England would be colored gray.

November comes and November goes with the last red berries and the first white snows...

November comes
And November goes
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early
And dawn coming late
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.

~Clyde Watson

October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain; and November arrived...

...cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces.

It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.

In A Pumpkin Mood by lancelonie, on Flickr

Bittersweet October - the mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.

~Carol Bishop Hipps

At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents. Plan by the tides and follow the sun.

Poem about sun and beach in Delray by Karina Kfuri Leal

The Sun is shy,
Teasing to hold strong for a beach day;
Maybe later he might decide to stay.
Until then I keep on hopes
For my little spot on the beach in Delray. ~Karina Kfuri Leal

The Sun is shy, Teasing to hold strong for a beach day, Maybe later he might decide to stay. Until then I keep on hopes, For my little spot on the beach In Delray. ~ Karina Kfuri Leal by j_aubz, on Flickr

There are two types of fisherman - those who fish for sport and those who fish for fish.

I travel light. I think the most important thing is to be in a good mood and enjoy life wherever you are.
