We had a very nice vacation, and are now home safe and sound, although we could have stayed away forever . . .

"Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction."

    ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I've always enjoyed Antoine de Saint-Exupery and I'll never forget reading Le Petit Prince in French class, a classic story that can be enjoyed on a number of levels . . .
