W.B. Yeats' "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" has been my favorite poem since I first read it at 18 (which was MANY years ago):

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, 
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

In my experience, when one gets too stressed (school, work, volunteer work, new puppy, cats who won't come in the house because of the new puppy...) one must take some time to get pampered.  So, I went to see the fabulous Marlene and treated myself to a facial.


                                  Happy new year!  And happy corner-viewing!

I would like to install one of these in my shower, but I've not been able to find one in the Home Depot or Wal-Mart.  Maybe Ikea has one??

Well, I remembered to take photos too late... but this is my Friday night class.  We were all in attendance to study this book:


Fellow students, Danny and  Paolo, posed with the book as I had forgotten to take a photo while class was still in session.


And a few stragglers ...


And, completely off topic - may I introduce my new pup, Annie Gertrude.

Doors

An open door says, “Come in.”
A shut door says, “Who are you?”
Shadows and ghosts go through shut doors.
If a door is shut and you want it shut,
     why open it?
If a door is open and you want it open,
     why shut it?
Doors forget but only doors know what it is
     doors forget.

                        By Carl Sandburg


I spent last week with family who welcomed me with open arms and open doors.  Father Winter opened his doors as well and we had a white Thanksgiving.



However, all good things must come to an end and no matter how much fun you had, when you are 464.8 miles into a 675 mile return trip...
 ...you are very happy to be welcomed back to your home state.

Happy corner-viewing!

My home is very colorful... I may have mentioned this a time or two... The one connecting color is red.  I have a little red in every room:
