The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.

~ Dorothy Parker ~

The amiable  sunshine invites you to indulge your curiosity and explore Michigan’s  woodland trails.

Shadow of a Divine Perfection

The true work of art is but the shadow of a divine perfection.

Pass Over a Provocation

The discretion of a person defers his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a provocation.
