I have been starting posts, then deciding not to post them too long, so here goes.
My quail laid me her first egg today--exciting! Obviously, the tiny egg is hers is the photo below. So cute, to use a oft overused word.

Cheer up! Cheer up! Life could be worse!
I am reading John Adams by David McCullough for school. An excellent biography of an fascinating man.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

“The longer I live, the more I read, the more patiently I think, and the more anxiously I inquire, the less I seem to know...Do justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly [with your God]. This is enough.”
- John Adams
I have also been reading some of Emily Dickinson's poems, and I love them. Her rhyming and meter is so terse, yet evocative and beautiful.

I promise to post more later! If you have any ideas for me to post about, please leave a comment.
