Spring Flowers After a Rain

Too bad that so many of the spring flowers only last a week or so around here.

Been forcing myself to work on beading, which hasn't been easy lately - life has been getting in the way again.

Today's quotation comes from William Faulkner: People need trouble - a little frustration to sharpen the spirit on, toughen it. Artists do; I don't mean you need to live in a rat hole or gutter, but you have to learn fortitude, endurance. Only vegetables are happy.

And one more from Goethe: What does not kill me makes me stronger.

And to round it out, another from Goethe: We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.
