Another sundial photo, this time of the centerpiece. The sundial reminds me of astronomy, which reminds me of St. Exupery, who reminds us of the following:

“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

The notion of looking on at life has always been hateful to me. What am I if I am not a participant? In order to be, I must participate. “

“The one thing that matters is the effort.”

“The time for action is now. It’s never too late to do something.”
