People Will Forget

People will forget what you said.
People will forget what you did...
But people will never forget how you made them feel.
(Anonymous in 365 Ways to Change Your Life by Suzanne Somers, p. 107)

Intuition is the spiritual faculty that does not explain, it simply points the way.
(Florence Scoval Schinn in Acts of Faith by Iyanla Vanzant, 6 April)

A democracy is not a place where every man has a right to do what he likes; it is a place where people enter into a fellowship in which the watchword is not independent isolation but interdependent togetherness.
(William Barclay, The Letter to the Corinthians, p. 295)
  • Yesterday I worked outside making up a container of potting mixture. We buy three ingredients in bulk: spangham peat, perlite and vermiculite. I sift the peat to remove debris. Then I mix two parts peat with one part perlite and one part vermiculite. If I have charcoal, egg shell and lime available I throw in a little bit of each. Each time I make the mixture I fill up a large plastic bin.
  • I completed my project to post on Delicious the URL's of places to visit in Baltimore, Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC. I used the tag "sightseeing" with each posting. I included websites for transportation too: the DC Connector, the Tourmobile and the Metro. There are 68 postings in all. Anyone coming to Washington, DC can access my Delicious account to quickly locate the websites of places I recommend. I must admit that I have yet to visit all of them myself. Three I'd like to visit are: the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial, the Postal Museum and the new Marine Corps Museum.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Thanks for the comment you left on my blog. It was nice to get some reader feedback. I couldn't tell if anyone was reading or not.

I wish I knew whether there's a way to add a visitor counter.
