George Bernard Shaw

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

~George Bernard Shaw

I’m not quite ready to be thrown on the scrap heap yet, but I am worn out enough to let Shaw do the talking for me in this blog entry.

Just a quick thank you to those of you who sent your kind words and thoughts my way for my mom's surgery this week.  Everything went well and she is home resting and recouperating.

And, check out the new pictures on the site from the first stage of Helen’s development last summer—many thanks to Joan Jastrebski at the Kaufman Center for them.
