Quote du jour/Henry David Thoreau

The thinnest yellow light of November is more warming and exhilarating than any wine they tell of. The mite which November contributes becomes equal in value to the bounty of July.
Henry David Thoreau


  1. What a great photo!
    Ah-h November...the month with my favorite holiday of all. Thanksgiving.

  2. I, too, love this photo! The small patch of blue among all the dark gray. Beautiful!

  3. Thank you Mare and Nan. I do love sky pictures.

  4. I love that photo - there is just something about a November sky, so wild and full of winter promises, just knocks me out.

  5. The photo and the Thoreau poem touched me in a special way this gray day. Thank You.

  6. How true! How true! Today I saw the littlest bit of blue sky and later an icicle sparkled and I did more rejoicing over that blue and that sparkle than I would have over a week of sunny summer days.

    P.S. How'd I do? :)

  7. I just love Thoreau. I wish I could just run again and stay isolated for a year in a cabin. What wisdom he had!

    By the way, I love that clock you gave me the link for! I would never convince Jos though. I would just have to buy something and sit it on his nightstand. :)

    Hugs ~

  8. Wow, Sue! You went a long way back! Thank you for the note.


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
