    From my then 11 year old:

    "Dad, why is it that when a woman can't hear a man, he's mumbling, and when a man can't hear a woman, he's not paying attention?"

    My wife was not amused. I later pulled the boy aside and explained to him about the value of discretion and knowing one's audience.

    If you pick 'em up, O Lord, I'll put 'em down. ~Author Unknown, "Prayer of the Tired Walker"

    Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. ~John Muir

    Another good Emerson quote: A weed is a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.
    Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.
    -Edward Abbey
