Kid has style! 
Easter morning in Norfolk’s Ghent neighborhood - 1942 - 
The fair sex, as usual, took the spotlight with an unprecedented display of dresses, suits, hats and flowers, but the male side of the picture was not as drab and colorless as in former years, due to the presence of thousands of uniformed soldiers, sailors and marines.  Olive drab and navy blue were two of the most conspicuous colors observed during the day.

Kid has style! 

Easter morning in Norfolk’s Ghent neighborhood - 1942 - 

The fair sex, as usual, took the spotlight with an unprecedented display of dresses, suits, hats and flowers, but the male side of the picture was not as drab and colorless as in former years, due to the presence of thousands of uniformed soldiers, sailors and marines.  Olive drab and navy blue were two of the most conspicuous colors observed during the day.

ALBUM

"I ran to find peace. I ran, and kept running, because I had learned that once you started something you didn’t quit, because in life, you have to keep pressing forward. Eventually I ran because I turned into a runner, and my sport brought me physical pleasure and spirited me away from debt and disease, from niggling worries of everyday existence. I ran because I grew to love other runners. I ran because I loved challenges and because there is no better feeling than arriving at the finish line or completing a difficult training run. And because as an accomplished runner, I could tell others how rewarding it was to live healthily, to move my body everyday, to get through difficulties, to eat with consciousness, that what mattered wasn’t how much money you made or where you lived, it was how you lived. I ran because overcoming the difficulties of an ultramarathon reminded me that I could overcome the difficulties of life, that overcoming difficulties was life."

“Firecrackers and whistles sounded the advent of the New Year of 1965 in St. Louis. Stripteasers ran from the bars in Gaslight Square to dance in the street when midnight came. Burroughs, who had watched television alone that night, was asleep in his room at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel, St. Louis’s most elegant.”

1. “Most people are on the world, not in it. ”
2. “Who wouldn’t be a mountaineer! Up here all the world’s prizes seem nothing.”
3. “Few places in this world are more dangerous than home. Fear not, therefore, to try the mountain passes. They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action.”
4. “The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.”
5. “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.”
6. “I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”
7. “In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
8. “This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.”
9. “One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.”
10. “There is a love of wild nature in everybody, an ancient mother-love showing itself whether recognized or no, and however covered by cares and duties”
11. “I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.”
12. “One day’s exposure to mountains is better than a cartload of books.”
13. “Most people who travel look only at what they are directed to look at. Great is the power of the guidebook maker, however ignorant.”
14. “I never saw a discontented tree.”
15. “None of Nature’s landscapes are ugly so long as they are wild.”
16. “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”
17. “Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.”
18. “Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.”
19. “The mountains are fountains of men as well as of rivers, of glaciers, of fertile soil. The great poets, philosophers, prophets, able men whose thoughts and deeds have moved the world, have come down from the mountains – mountain dwellers who have grown strong there with the forest trees in Nature’s workshops.”
20. “Going to the mountains is going home.”

Casual day at the library - the science museum came to do a program for our Summer Reading kids! This is what I wear when I know I’m going to be crawling around on the floor with a bunch of kids all day, taking photos and helping build earthquake-proof houses out of toothpicks and marshmallows.
