Appreciation

'The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one's appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship.' Amelia Earhart, quoted in 'Soaring Wings : A Biography of Amelia Earhart' (George Palmer Putnam, 1939)

Clocking Off

The air is milder, the days little-by-little longer, now, I feel it is but a short hop to Spring. In the morning, I leave for work as the sun comes up, and in the evening, I leave for home just as it sets. Winter is clocking off.
