.. and so it begins ..

One of the most glorious messes in the world
is the mess created in the living room on
Christmas Day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.

.. good intentions, they won’t last forever ..

 

I know I haven’t been perfect, but give it some time
Cause not a single day goes by where you don’t cross my mind
And we spend our lives looking for things we can’t find
Oh, but not a single day goes by where you don’t cross my mind

~ “Cross My Mind” by Arizona

.. beauty of a building ..

It is not the beauty of a building you should look at;
its the construction of the foundation that will stand
the test of time.                             ~ David Allan Coe
