Going To The Woods

I went to the woods 
because I wished to live deliberately, 
to front only the essential facts of life, 
and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die, 
discover that I had not lived.  
Henry David Thoreau, 1854

Hats Never Went Out Of Style

It is not easy to be crafty and winsome at the same time, 
and few accomplish it after the age of six.  
John W. Gardner and Francesca Gardner Reese

By far the best hat on the slope this year.  I had to move fast to capture this little live wire!

Ah, Faith!

Faith is believing
that the outcome will be what it should be,
no matter what it is.
Colette Baron-Reid

This little one in ski helmet caught my eye last week on my ski trip.  It wasn't until after I took the picture that I realized her name was Faith.  Quite appropriate.  And I love this quote by Colette Baron-Reid.  "Things happen for a reason."  I've been telling myself that for quite awhile now.  I just never realized that is a form of faith.

Only Julie Andrews Can Call the Alps--Hills

The hills are alive
with the sound of music
with songs they have sung
for a thousand years.
The Sound of Music

One of my favorite pictures from our recent ski trip.  The Rockies are beautiful.  I took this one on my last run of the first day.  I love the white snow and blue sky.  Looking at this picture, I can almost smell the air!
