"And to this purpose"

"If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it." (In other words: rambling analyses, opinions, ideas, views, and comments from an English major, Essay/paper-writing enthusiastic, Austen-loving Master Librarian on, well, Jane Austen...and a whole lot of other things, too.)

"Celebrated Passages are Quoted"

Heidi's favorite quotes

"What is it really like to be engaged?" asked Anne curiously. "Well, that all depends on who you're engaged to," answered Diana, with that maddening air of superior wisdom always assumed by those who are engaged over those who are not."— L.M. Montgomery

Another year past

[from my LDS blog today]
Day 66

Yes. I have another gratitude for another vanity of mine.
I try not to get too attached to it, for fear that one day I'll lose it all. But if I ever do, I will have had the many wonderful years with the glorious (curly!) hair that Heavenly Father has blessed me with.
Exactly a year ago, I said good-bye to my hair in my second time to donate it. I like being able to donate my beautiful hair and hope some child may share in its beauty when they need any uplift they can.
However, I was not as ready to part with my hair this time, and it was harder to be with the short hair. Not to mention, I don't really like short hair. It doesn't matter if the haircut was really nice, and that I look just fine with short hair.
I love long hair.
And that's all there is to it.

So it has been nice as this past year has gone on and I've watched my hair grow.

To when it finally reached past my shoulders again.
To when I could wear it up (with LOTS of pins!) again.
To when I could put it in 2 french braids again.
To when the not-so-curly days looked OK again.
It may not be as long as it was. (Of course.)

Or as long as it can (and hopefully will) be.

But it is finally at a length again when I am pretty happy with it. In fact, I think this length is actually really good for me.
But I'm still going to have my times with my "princess long" hair. Hey--while it's beautiful color and curl, I'm going to enjoy the length while I can!

I love the long hair. When I was heavier I thought I had to have shorter 'poofier' hair, so since I lost weight I've had it long and I love it. I'm with you.

I love your hair so much! I have always been jealous of it (in a good way) and LOVE seeing the beautiful things you do with it!
