It's Complicated

 Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions. 
Oliver Wendell Holmes
 
 
*For those of you who asked for an explanation of the photo....it was my crystal paperweight combined with a number of decanter stoppers. I purchased the crystal stoppers at Henry's place in Ohio over 10 years ago. Henry bought and sold antiques. Somewhere around Canton or Lima (really can't remember where) there is a two story house packed to the gills with stuff. I dug the stoppers out and gave them a new home in Alabama.*

  5. Are we looking at jewelry?
    I love to read, I always have. There are times I can not put a book down, I have to finish it. My eyes will actually ache. Then there are times I read to fall asleep. However, when I do this I usually can not remember what I read the night before so I don't accomplsih much, but I do fall asleep!
