She notes that, "Much of our joy is in direct response to nature." For me, this is true. Emerson writes, "In the presence of nature a wild delight runs through man, in spite of real sorrows. Nature says - he is my creature, and maugre all his impertinent griefs, he shall be glad with me. Not the sun or the summer alone, but every hour and season yields its tribute of delight; for every hour and change correspond to and authorizes a different state of mind."
I find great delight in nature. I attribute nature as God's creation; I marvel at it and it gives me such joy.

Audrey: So I am trying to figure this whole pinterest thing out. Well anyways, I go to "follow" you and your page pops up and all I see is white rooms. White bedroom, white kitchen, white bathroom, white living room, white, white, white. 22 white rooms. wow
Claire: Oh, I miss you guys!
Leonora Aaand... no power! Lovely! Snowstorm by candlelight is fine as long as the toilets flush.
Audrey: You must love snowstorms. The entire world turns...wait for it.....WHITE!
