Happy in small ways.

Testing the photobooth set up (which came together so well--ask me if you ever need to make one)

“In spite of illness, in spite even of the archenemy sorrow, one can remain alive along past the usual date of disintegration if one is unafraid of change, insatiable in intellectual curiosity, interested in big things, and happy in small ways.”--Edith Wharton

(My lovely friend Jaime, with whom I stayed in Little Rock, had this quote on her fridge and I kept reading it and saying "yes!" Now it's become my new manifesto for growing older and enjoying life just as long as I can. I would personally add yoga to this list but then I want to add yoga to every list)

  1. I love that photo of you and Edith is one cool lady -- I have pix and such of her in my journal...and picked up one of her books this past weekend for a project i'm working on...
