"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not." .....................Ralph Waldo Emerson.

"Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation we cannot change, at least for the time being, and we must decide how to live with it. We can choose to be angry and bitter, complaining to all who will hear, or we can accept the realities of the moment and live graciously with our lot. Funny, how our perspective toward something determines our response to it. When we choose to find the good and valuable in our circumstances, suddenly, we find ourselves more content with what is, and less apt to dwell on what might have been. Our attitudes transform our experiences."

Over time I will add links to information about some of my favorite interests, such as:

  • The novels and real life of Laura Ingalls Wilder
  • The settlement of the American West - Oregon/California/Mormon Trails, Frontier forts, the culture of the Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho, the history of the Gold Rush, the history of the Railroad
  • Architecture from the following eras: Victorian, early skyscarper, Prairie School, Art Deco
