So, I got unemployed a long time ago (back in March, he says, dusting off the cobwebs from Overthinking It), and was sitting in my apartment applying for jobs with my girlfriend this morning, when I came across this quotation, from Ralph Waldo Emerson.

“Doubt not, O poet, but persist. Say, ‘It is in me, and shall out.’ Stand there, baulked and dumb, stuttering and stammering, hissed and hooted, stand and strive, until, at last, rage draw out of thee that dream-power which every night shows thee is thine own; a power transcending all limit and privacy, and by virtue of which a man is the conductor of the whole river of electricity.”

I dedicate this to all of you going through hard times.

    Crystal – My mom was in St augustine with frenids this past weekend too! I love your collage. Macen with the starfish, Madi and the splurge of water, and oh oh oh, my fav; your mom (I assume) holding Noelle Love Em!! That was so neighborly of your neighbors. You deserve neighbors like that, even if your chickens have flown the coop ;P

    Dandelions are everywhere now, so many little gold suns! I particularly like one place in the neighbouring village where the road is densely lined with them on both sides.
