This is my symphony

"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconcious, grow up through the common - this is my symphony." [William Henry Channing]

I really do aspire to those goals, but I'm humbled that I'm not as close as I wish.... but, I know in my heart I'm going to keep trying to play that song.... and hopefully i will keep making progress. If I go backwards - then I'll get pissed.
