Here's the house where we stayed on Dauphin Island.
 It was very close to the beach. Nice!

Check out these birds that followed our ferry from Dauphin Island to Fort Morgan. Watch the pelican in the second half of the video!

Don't look now, but it's pollen season in Alabama.

Yellow dust coats everything, including my car...


...and the driveway to my work.

Lovely.

In the 1950s, 12 percent of high school seniors said they were a “very important person.” By the ’90s, 80 percent said they believed that they were.

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. ~Langston Hughes

I love this kind of stuff

spring

Nothing is so beautiful as spring--
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.


What is all this juice and all this joy?
A strain of the earth’s sweet being in the beginning
In Eden garden. --Have, get, before it cloy,
Before it cloud, Christ, lord, and sour with sinning,
Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,
Most, O maid’s child, thy choice and worthy the winning.

~Gerard Manley Hopkins
