happy st patrick's day

A sombre choice to celebrate St. Paddy's, Bonny Portmore is a traditional Irish folk song lamenting the decimation of the oak forests of Ireland, which sailed the ships of England  as she set about conquering the world.   

A call to action from another era - something we would do well to heed on so many different levels in these turbulent times.

happy belated 108th dr. seuss

After all, some of the most important things in life I learned from you:

1. You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” 
 Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

2.  “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” 
 Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!

3.  “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” 
 Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

4.  “A person's a person, no matter how small.” 
 Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who!

5.  “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, 
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.” 
 Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
