Weekend Brew


In spite of illness, in spite even of the arch-enemy sorrow, one can remain alive long 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
1862-1937

Author of Ethan Frome, House of Mirth, and my favorite, The Age of Innocence (Pulitzer 1921)

I just wanted to apologize for being such a bad bloggy friend. I have been off of blogger for awhile because you see, I fell into a big, huge blog ditch and I finally dug myself out!

I promise to be better. You are one of my longest bloggy friends on here and I had to come on and apologize to you.

I am so glad to have a second cup of coffee with you today! But it sure was a quick cup. haha
Seriously though, I love coming to visit you regularly.

Excellent insight! Not something you come up with unless there's some experience behind it.

I always liked Ethan Frome. Kind of weird. Good quote.

Haven't seen you around much, but have been reading your blog- a daily fix.
