The Trees...

The leaves are fading.

But many are still green.

I took all of these pictures.

They are of our woods.

It was in the morning, and the sun was rising up through the leaves in the East.

If you have trees

Enjoy them

Breath the air they give you

And live

Seize the day.

Just to make sure

That you know

That I think that this is the most beautiful place

In the world.

October 19, 1781

Okay, I am SO mad that I did not know this. I mean, it should be like a National Holiday, like 4th of July! This is way more important, a little less cool perhaps, but way more important. And I'd never even heard it before, it was just chance that I found out today.

I was sitting on my bed reading this awesome history book from 1970, reading about the Revolutionary War. I'm always learning neat stuff. Like today alone, I just learned that the famous John Paul Jones was from
Scotland! ("I have not yet begun to fight" is cool enough, just imagine is with a Scottish accent!)

As I was saying, I was sitting there reading and all of the sudden I came across these words "October 19, 1781." HEY! That's Today! The day that Lord Cornwallis surrendered and We the People of the United States won the war for Independents.

Maybe it is common knowledge and I alone didn't know, but I still think that today we should be celebrating.

God Bless America


The whole time I was working on this post, I was constantly bothered by a very perplexing question.

"Why don't I live there?"

But, I guess when you get down to it, I really don't want to live there. So I'll just enjoy the pictures.

While I was getting the pictures of of Wikipedia, I came across this article. This is the whole article, and I guess it just about tells you every thing you need to know about the Isle of Skye.

Skye (Scots Gaelic: Eilean Sgitheanach) is an island in the Inner Hebrides. Mony fowk o the island speaks the Gaelic. Skye is whaur Bonny Prince Charlie escaped frae efter the 45.

Queen Elizabeth I of England

Would you like to know one of the things that I find fascinating, people's hand writing. Really, I always like to see how someone writes how they sign their names, how people in history wrote.

See, when I was a kid, I always thought that Walt Disney's signature was what popped up under that little castle. There are a few singularities, but the real thing is much, much, cooler.

Some signatures (most, actually) like Queen Victoria's, above, I find impossible to read. I cannot even read it when I know what it says.

Others are quite recognizable. I consider this one, above, to be the most famous one in history. It is.

And this one, above, I find very interesting. It looks like it says Winstons Churchill. It actually says Winston S. (As in Spencer.) Churchill.

This other one, below, is very rare. Only six originals exist, so they say. I think it is quite interesting. I'll let you guess who's it is.

And this last one, I deem it my favorite. For reasons I don't think I have to go into.

John William Waterhouse

I have nothing to say. Nothing at all. Other than I think this is about the most beautiful dress I've ever seen.

I was recently featured in a blog post done by my Dear Mother. You can have a look at it here.


I thought of calling this post 'Dress Envy', for that is really all it is. But I guess that wouldn't look to good as a title.

Since all of these pictures are of Miranda I might as well tell you who she is.

John William Waterhouse

Miranda is the daughter of Prospero in the Shakespearean comedy The Tempest. She grew up all alone on an island with her father. She eventually marries Ferdinand prince of Naples. (Nice life, huh?)

William Maw Egley

And that is essentially all that you have to know. All of these paintings a have admired at various times, I just thought that I would put them all together in a post called 'Miranda'.

John William Waterhouse
Have a lovely day.

I Have Been...


Away from my house.

Away sitting by waterfalls.

Away wandering through woods.

Away from reliable internet access.

I've exciting news. I have my own camera now! (If you zoom in closely on the awesome picture, that Kae took, you can see it in my hands.)

I was assembling it in the van as we were driving down the road. I got it together and the first picture I took was of a church. But wouldn't you know it....

I looked like a little castle. :)

I've been adoring the glorious fall weather.

For it is very much like fall in Maryland.

And that is where I was.

But I am back now. Back home. Back with internet access. Back sitting like Nightcrawler on Kae's wabbly little stool as I use her computer.

But it is like fall here now. But only in temperature. The leaves have nor yet started to turn.

But when they do, I'll be there.

With my camera.

There will be more pictures from Maryland, soon.

Until then, I'm back and more in the mood for blogging than ever.

God daeg.
