"I'd like to add some beauty to life," said Anne dreamily. "I don't exactly want to make people KNOW more... though I know that IS the noblest ambition... but I'd love to make them have a pleasanter time because of me... to have some little joy or happy thought that would never have existed if I hadn't been born.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne's House of Dreams

aftermath of the storm
we had a big coastal storm yesterday. I came into work in the morning but left after an hour because the power went out. I'm so glad I was gone when this tree came down right outside my office window. It missed the cottage by inches so I wouldn't have been harmed except to have the crap scared out of me.
I got here this morning to find the tree and that we still don't have power. It's hard to get any work done these days without a computer so it looks like today will be another fun reading day at home.
