This is My Symphony


To live content with small means;

to seek elegance rather than luxury,

and refinement rather than fashion;

to be worthy, not respectable,

and wealthy, not rich;

to listen to stars and birds,

babes and sages with open heart;

to study hard;

to think quietly,

act frankly,

talk gently,

await occasions, hurry never;

in a word, to let the spiritual,

unbidden and unconscious,

grow up through the common

~ this is my symphony.

William Harry Channing.

This is my wish for you on this snowy Sunday.

Shine On!
