Mantra

I just wrote this line in an email to a friend.  It bears repeating.var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src=’” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”));var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-xxxxxx-x”);pageTracker._trackPageview(); What I want is to sit and knit in front of the fire.  Hike in the woods.  Knit some more.  Drink cocoa.  Knit,…

Elemental

While Autumn has been quietly advancing I feel as if I have been rushing about and too busy to enjoy the beauty, the colors, the brisk air, and the wind.  But not for long.var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src=’” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”));var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-xxxxxx-x”);pageTracker._trackPageview(); The wind –…
