Sunday Quote



Thou that hast given so much to me,

Give one thing more, a grateful heart.

Not thankful when it pleaseth me,

As if thy blessings had spare days;

But such a heart, whose pulse may be thy praise.

-George Herbert

These are such wonderful words. Thank you. And what is that picture???

Thanks, all.
The photo is of a painted giant sized statue of a buoy that stands near the entrance of the Maritime Center in Norwalk, Ct.

You don't suppose it was done by this fellow, do you? There's a similar look.

Hey Nan,
I don't think so, but I liked that one - very strong. Kind of Calder-esque in that sense of playfulness and strength combined. Nice.
