penny for your thoughts

"There was a shepherd that did live,
And held his thoughts as high
As were the mounts whereon his flocks
Did hourly feed him by."(11)
What should we think of the shepherd's life if his flocks always wandered to higher pastures than his thoughts? Thoreau

Life's Little Smiles

~ wishing wells that glisten with 1,000 people's hopes
~ flowing feature fountains on crooked cobbled paths
~ sing-a-longs with my brother on guitar & his friend on violin
~ pocketwatches [the first time i ever saw one used was when i asked my 15 year old brother the time & he pulled a pocketwatch out of his trouser pocket, it was something you see in old movies but never in person :)]
~ this song
~ moments of beauty even when stuck in traffic for hours on end{a tiny exaggeration, only one hour}
~ buildings that climb high in the sky, their windows reflecting the heights to which we can soar

"Why are there trees i never walk under but large & melodious thoughts descend upon me?" ~Walt Whitman

Today i think large thoughts
