Auld Lang Syne

Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
on Old long syne.
On Old long syne my Jo,
in Old long syne,
That thou canst never once reflect,
on Old long syne.

My Heart is ravisht with delight,
when thee I think upon;
All Grief and Sorrow takes the flight,
and speedily is gone;
The bright resemblance of thy Face,
so fills this, Heart of mine;
That Force nor Fate can me displease,
for Old long syne.

Since thoughts of thee doth banish grief,
when from thee I am gone;
will not thy presence yield relief,
to this sad Heart of mine.
Why doth thy presence me defeat,
with excellence divine?
Especially when I reflect
on Old long syne.

May you all have a healthy and prosperous new year!

Hi friends, I just thought I'd share a few of my favorites from the past week. Enjoy!

While visiting my parents, my dad, who is retired, showed me his latest project. He likes to fix up old, vintage tractors. Oliver tractors, to be specific. I really like looking at the inner workings of a machine, a real machine with parts that make sense and work together, and don't require a computer hook-up to diagnose problems. To see more pictures from my dad's shop, go here.

Winter in Vermont

Hi folks, I hope you've all had a magical Christmas with family, or friends, or both. I'm back from  a truly beautiful Christmas with my family in the Northeast Kingdom, and in case you haven't heard, they've gotten a little snow. But Vermonters are used to it, which is why you'll find their pantries well-stocked and shovels ready. While it makes driving a challenge, it has a nice way of slowing everyone down a little and sheds a peaceful calm over everything.

I have a lot of neat things to share over the next few days; among them a new collaborative blogging project that you'll hear more about later and that I hope inspires you!

Stay warm!
