spun gold from straw

I was going through and deleting some spam this morning while I feel like my clothes are de-steaming themselves from my commute in today and a message advertising teen models willing to go all the way to make it was using some filler text, one line jumped out at me: Earth laughs in flowers… – from a quotation (poem?) by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

I’m not sure how the spam escaped my filter but I’m glad it did just to be reminded that while it’s nasty and muggy and people drive like maniacs or scared old ladies and you get smacked with umbrellas and water splashed on your work slacks and soggy bits of newspaper stuck to your shoes… that if the earth didn’t cry, she could never laugh.
