Yesterday Barry was Three!

Pictured here is Barry, our long haired Dachshund
who turned three years big on Saturday. He is pictured here with his stuffed cigar in his mouth.

Last night my wife and youngest daughter went to a pig roast, weather here was absolutely beautiful in the evening.

Doing chores today for the most part, not writing as of yet, perhaps later.

Another couple of Amy Lowell quotes to share today and starting Monday, I'll select another poet to quote throughout the week.

Here is an Amy Lowell quote on art: "Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in." A very good starting place to describe what art is, I think.

Here she speaks of happiness: "Happiness: We rarely feel it. I would buy it, beg it, steal it, Pay in coins of dripping blood For this one transcendent good."

And lastly, perhaps a bit of good advise from this poet...

"Take everything easy and quit dreaming and brooding and you will be well guarded from a thousand evils."
