Thanks for stopping by, whether you got here by a link or hitting "next blog" -- I am glad you are here. I've also done some writing on homeschooling, and what I learned thinking I was teaching.

Sunny & Seventy: Mas O menos

That’s what Doug and I just about average age-wise – and we felt sunny this first day of March!

O! Today! When Texas weather is good – it is very, very good; and the two of us walked about our neighborhood before lunch – spotting jonquils, tulip trees, and lawns turning green in the sunshine. We were as covered up from the sun’s rays at noon as some of the same flowerbeds were later covered for the coming frost. By dinnertime, wispy white coverings on many pots and beds meant some folks  do believe the weatherman. 

Some front is sweeping in,  that will plunge us back into winter’s chill and dampness in the next 24 hours. But, having a day in which I can open up the windows and feel sunlight – and smell the hope of new life . . . may these moments stay firmly planted in a retrievable data bank in my aging brain!

·      Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.  ~From the television show The Wonder Years

·      One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.
~Emily Dickinson, "Time and Eternity"

·      It's surprising how much memory is built around things unnoticed at the time.  ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams
