Favourites - TP




In honor of this being our 400th post for 





Favourite or Favorite
however you spell it
bring your favorites here.

Quotes and photos, a couple of my favorite things,
and an afternoon visit to one of my favorite towns,
Northfield, Minnesota.


"To be too large for worry, too noble for anger,
too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble."
Christian D. Larson






"This is for flames, for petals,
for the weight of night
and morning's distance."
(opening line of sidewalk quote below)


Always make your optimism come true.



Artwork by Northfield High School students.

"To think only the best,
to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own worth."
Christian D. Larson




"To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind."
Christian D. Larson




I see trees without leaves
knowing soon they'll be green.
Skies of blue
clouds of white
the white blessed days
wearing cheerful faces
and sharing smiles.



Look up!
I think to myself
What A Wonderful World



Do not be afraid to let your mind wander.






In the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul
and take good care of you.

What fantastic artwork created by the high school students! Blue skies and encouraging words do much to push us through the cold winter.
