"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Live the life you have imagined."
Henry David Thoreau
It has finally stopped raining for more than about 5 minutes. The sun is shining and it is semi-warm (high 40's),which means we can actually work outside without either freezing, getting soaked to the skin, or sinking up to our knees in mud. Today, we're putting in one side of the back pasture fencing, and tomorrow we'll finish the roofing on the woodshed. Monday, it's supposed to start raining again. Sigh. I'm enjoying the sun while I can.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself. Harvey Fierstein
“Our economy is based on spending billions to persuade people that happiness is buying things, and then insisting that the only way to have a viable economy is to make things for people to buy so they’ll have jobs and get enough money to buy things.” – Philip Elliot Slater
"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic and military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the state to use all of it's powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the state." - Joseph Goebbles.

Remember "Little House on the Prairie"? This ain't it. When a California-born, desert-dwelling, Big-City girl finally realizes her dream of having a homestead in the country and moves lock, stock, and barrel to the Appalachian foothills of Kentucky, anything can happen--and usually does! I'm learning as I go. But as Auntie Mame so succinctly put it,"Live, Live, Live! Life is a banquet, and most poor fools are starving to death!" Welcome to my banquet.
