“Happiness always looks small while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is.”
– Aleksei Peshkov

I can’t wait to start adding paint!! This really is just one house. Isn’t it beautiful?
I am actually going to take Sunday and Monday off this weekend. I
haven’t taken a two day weekend in many months. I hope I get some
painting time in. We’re having company, so I never know. I like it
when everybody sleeps in, so I can play with my paint.
Have a very safe and fun Memorial Day weekend!
About Aleksei Peshkov
Russian social realist author Aleksei Peshkov, known as Maxim Gorky,
was so esteemed that his birthplace, Nizhny Novgorod, was renamed Gorky
in his honor. He was born in 1868. His parents died when he was young,
and he left his home at age 12. He was arrested in the late 1880′s as a
revolutionary. His writing, including his best-known novel, The Mother,
portrayed a decadent society and immense poverty. He became
disillusioned after the Russian Revolution, feeling Lenin’s Communism
was little better. He died in 1936.
