Today well-lived makes Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness and every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope. Look well therefore to this Day! Such is the Salutation of the Dawn. --From The Sanskrit.

Home Sweet Home
I live in a small town in Texas. I never thought I'd end up here, but I came here with my family at the start of my senior high school year--having lived a multitude of places before coming here. Its a medium size town with all kinds of people in a part of Texas that is pretty flat and very dry. It has its own charm--that mostly being the modernization of the "old west".
Most of the people here are fairly religious, conservative and industrious. The economy is based on agriculture, manufacturing, education and travel and tourism. We have a healthy economy.
Our climate is dry, windy and can produce a tornado or two. It can be harsh but people here have a pioneer spirit that helps us all endure and continue living here.
I know there are more exciting places to live, but its home sweet home.
