pearls and seaweed
...Thoreau's Journal: 06-Jul-1840

Have no mean hours, but be grateful for every hour, and accept what it brings. The reality will make any sincere record respectable. No day will have been wholly misspent, if one sincere, thoughtful page has been written.

Let the daily tide leave some deposit on these pages, as it leaves sand and shells on the shore. So much increase of terra firma. This may be a calendar of the ebbs and flows of the soul; and on these sheets as a beach, the waves may cast up pearls and seaweed.

each day we must do something for ourselves and something for others! it is a balance that will always work in our favor!. man should not have been given anger only the passion to fight injustice!. believe me when i tell you my friends i have seen self pity kill more men then any disease!. michael jameson oldantiqueguy@hotmail.com
