400

In honour of John Milton's 400th birthday today, I present for your deliberation a quote from his most excellent and epic poem, Paradise Lost:
"Nor love thy life nor hate but what thou liv'st
Live well, how long or short permit to Heav'n."
- 11.553-4

Ah, yes, Milton and his wisdom. :)

"Sufficient to stand, yet free to fall."

I had to smile when I found your blog through its link on the Rebelution. My name is Hannah too and one of my older brother's "nicknames" for me is Hanananah, and I'd never heard it anywhere else till now. =)
I also loved your Hurricane Hanna post too. And yes, what is up with spelling it wrong?! Argh! :P
I work at my local Ace Hardware and it's safe to say the majority of people that come in would call me "Hurricane Hannah".
Anyway, I've enjoyed what I've read on your blog.
Keep smiling! =)
Hannah

Oops I posted that before I proof read it. People have stopped calling me Hurrican Hannah for the most part now. :D
