"As kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame; / [ . . . ] Each mortal thing does one thing and the same: / Deals out that being indoors each one dwells; / Selves -- goes itself; 'myself' it speaks and spells, / Crying 'What I do is me; for that I came'." --Gerard Manley Hopkins

Hi, there! I heard the quote on Criminal Minds, actually; one of the main characters often offers intriguing philosophical commentary on the topic it addresses.

Any word on the house? R. said there might be an offer last week.

Your littlest brother is visiting VB for Thanksgiving with your younger sister.

Love you!
