life's plain, common work

"the best things in life are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. then do no grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life."

-robert louis stevenson


loving the new lens especially for garden shots. this little bee and all of his friends are obsessed with mom's vitex.

in other news, dad once played tennis with john isner, you know, the recent winner of the longest game in tennis history! isner was only 18 then but dad knew early on he was talented {dad beat him in the fist set, but isner went on to beat him in the next two}.

i'm now anxiously waiting for a letter from unc about deferring enrollment. . . when i get back home in august i will have a long list of things to plan out for the next year, but it is all so exciting.
