I got my "light box" back. Hallelujah!
Sunshine, clear blue skies, crispy 40's temp—perfect for an autumn day on Wed 24 Oct 07.

Thur 25 Oct 07 it actually got hot for this time of year--in the 70's. Lots of insects buzzing around hyperactive and got a wasp in the house, but that's another story I won't get into here.

And today? It's overcast again. Sigh.

I was googling tree quotes, can't vouch for their authenticity, but I liked these:

The beauty of the trees,
the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass,
speaks to me.
The summit of the mountain,
the thunder of the sky,
speaks to me.
The faintness of the stars,
the trail of the sun,
the strength of fire,
and the life that never goes away,
they speak to me.
And my heart soars.
—Chief Dan George
(NOTE: I've heard this one before? I think I have it written down from a library book maybe?)

Soak up the sun
Affirm life's magic
Be graceful in the wind
Stand tall after a storm
Feel refreshed after it rains
Grow strong without notice
Be prepared for each season
Provide shelter to strangers
Hang tough through a cold spell
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky
Be still long enough to
hear your own leaves rustling.
—Karen Shragg, Think Like a Tree

Plant trees. They give us two of the most crucial elements for our survival: oxygen and books.
—A Whitney Brown
