Stephen Crane - There was, before me

There was, before me,
Mile upon mile
Of snow, ice, burning sand.
And yet I could look beyond all this,
To a place of infinite beauty;
And I could see the loveliness of her
Who walked in the shade of the trees.
When I gazed,
All was lost
But this place of beauty and her.
When I gazed,
And in my gazing, desired,
Then came again
Mile upon mile,
Of snow, ice, burning sand.

Are you buying break

Are you buying breakfast , lunch and dinner out or is this your grocery budget? $300 grocery budget seems about right? Is this a budget for one? Remember the quality of your diet will determine your success! If you go too far into frugality or extreme, you wo278#n1&;t stick with it.
