Make it a good day

“It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.” ~Henry David Thoreau, Walden

New readers asked where to find earlier quarantine posts on my blog. They are filed under My quarantine journal” and you will find all posts here, appearing in order from the most current entry to the first entry I wrote in March last year. ~Cindy
