Nests of Pleasant Thoughts

March 27th, 2008

A couple of days ago the wind and clouds mixed beautifully with snowflakes and sunshine, and it looked almost like a magical place.  Are there ever enough pictures to satisfy the real beauty of a moment?

Nests

Make yourselves nests of pleasant thoughts!  None of us yet know, for none of us have been taught in early youth, what fairy palaces we may build of beautiful thoughts, proof against all adversity;  bright fancies, satisfied memories, noble histories, faithful sayings, treasure-houses of prescious and restful thoughts, which care cannot disturb, nor pain make gloomy, nor poverty take away from us;  houses built without hands, for our souls to live in.

                                                                       John Ruskin, 1819-1900
