“I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn." ~ Henry David Thoreau

Hello and hello

A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King.
~ Emily Dickinson

"New is good" is one of the things that we say around here at Casa Del Aguas. Usually these three words are used to convince the Boy that what he is poking on his plate is eatable, or where we are going is going to be fun… or at least interesting.

I’ve been learning how to play the ukulele that the wonderhub made for me. (Earplugs for everyone!) I’ve also started learning a new program that makes little computer games. It’s a challenge and yet entertaining, like putting a puzzle together, piece by piece. It’s hard to be patient and not get frustrated but just the act of figuring something out is invigorating.

How about you? Is there any new hobby or skill that you would like to learn? Where would you go, what would you do, if you knew you could not fail? Learn one new thing every day. You can do it!

Best thoughts,

"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain
