You can go to extremes with impossible schemes.
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams.

To be young at heart.
“There is something about saying, 'We always do this,' which helps keep the years together. Time is such an elusive thing that if we keep on meaning to do something interesting, but never do it, year would follow year with no special thoughtfulness being expressed in making gifts, surprises, charming table settings, and familiar, favorite food. Tradition is a good gift intended to guard the best gifts.” Edith Schaeffer

Zollicoffer Park marks the site of the fiercest fighting in the Battle of Mill Springs. The park is named for Confederate Gen. Felix K. Zollicoffer. It was here that Zollicoffer rode forward to speak with what he mistakenly thought were his own troops. As a result of his mistake, Zollicoffer was shot and killed.

If a man finds it within himself to live without others, he can live walled up and quiet for a long time. But then, he may make the next discovery, or life makes it upon him—that he cannot—and he grows a rage for connection, communication, personal fact, knowledge of the company he was born to.
