"I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship."
- Louisa May Alcott
Louisa May Alcott is still one of my favorite authors. Little Women is one of very, very few books that I have read more than once. I have read it cover-to-cover at least three times. There is still so much to learn from Jo and the other March sisters. Alcott always gives me inspiration. Needed this quote as I ready my ship to sail.

C'mon, y'all! Now y'all have to admit that we Texans have been pretty darn smart about a logical and useful word for second person plural in English. Guess it's because we are so close to Mexico. The Spanish language has THREE options for second person plural - ustedes (most common) and vosotros/as (for fancy folks in Spain, Argentina and Chile). But we Texans are much more pragmatic. We'll stick with just plain ol' y'all. Hope y'all find our contribution to the English language helpful. :-)
Anybody have any tips for slowing down, being present, living with less and with purpose? I'd love to hear them.
