Life


Ever, the undiscouraged, resolute struggling
      soul of man;
Have former armies failed? Then we send fresh
      armies—and fresh again
Ever the grappled mystery of all earth's ages
      old or new;
Ever the eager eyes, hurrahs, the welcome-clap-
      ping hands, the loud applause;
Ever the soul dissatisfied, curious, unconvinced
      at last;
Struggling to-day the same—battling the same.

WALT WHITMAN.

  1. Great quote, JB. We never know where life will take us.

  2. Thanks, Heather! The best part about the future is that it is full of infinite possibility. Or at least I think the function approaches infinity. Ask a mathematician to be sure.

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!
