I've been reading a lot of Lao Tzu recently as well.

Hey I recognize that place! I even know the exact date of the sunset--I love you!

Satakieli: yes, I recognized the name from your blog and loved so many of his quotes.

Rachel: I was wondering if you would recognize it. I know of few more beautiful sunsets. How is it possible to grow up in such a beautiful place?

You wrote so perfectly of "Farmer Boy"- Wow how I love those books- though I don't know where my little house books are. . . but my environment allowed me not only to read those books and hold them in my imagination- I read them and then I went outside and I played them too. .. I became each of those characters- and added new ones.

Okay, so we totally have your Little House books... but still in a box somewhere. And with your adorable handwriting on the inside of each book. So as soon as they surface, they're coming your way-- with more hand me downs. ;-)
