A Makeshift Utopia

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
-William Butler Yeats-
I am curious as to what my friends are doingfor Lent. Personally, there is a list.
  • Keep my grades at A's, and be a bit more efficient in doing homework
  • Fasting
  • Get back into the habit of reading. Finish Confessions, Orthodoxy, Nicomachean Ethics, and the Case for a Creator, and finally, begin on Mere Christianity.
  • Become a more realistic person, rather than let my ideals and emotions affect my decisions.
  • To be more loving. Period.

I'm feeling fun. I want spring. I want a picnic.

Haha, I'm just messing. I'm trying to go to daily mass more often, among other things.

2.(I am slo trying to be more considerate toward my mother. That one will probably kill me.)

I think it is amusing that you used the yeats quote. I have used that on one of my more recent blog posts. Good quote.
