...this is to be my symphony...

"To live content with small means;
 to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, 
to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich;
 to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, 
to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully,
 to all bravely await occasions, hurry never. 
In a word, to let the spiritual unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. 
This is to be my symphony."
 --William Henry Channing

This is such a beautiful new year's post, with beautiful quotes and photos. I am especially struck by William Channing's quote - I will try to keep it in mind for the coming year. Thank you.
