BC: Good Bye
FC: In those vernal seasons of the year, when the air is calm and pleasant, it were an injury and sullenness against Nature not to go out and see her riches, and partake in her rejoicing with heaven and earth. John Milton | A book of Petaluma, California seen through Peter Novotny's eyes and lense.
1: I just want you to know you mean the world to me Only a heart as dear as yours would give so unselfishly. The many things you've done, all the times that you were there, Helps me know deep down inside how much you really care. Even though I might not say it, I appreciate all you do So richly blessed is how I feel for having a father just like you.
9: In restless dreams I walked alone Narrow streets of cobblestone 'Neath the halo of a street lamp I turn my collar to the cold and damp When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light That split the night And touched the sound of silence -Paul Simon
18: One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. William Shakespeare
23: Man is not himself only...He is all that he sees; all that flows to him from a thousand sources...He is the land, the lift of its mountain lines, the reach of its valleys. Mary Austin
