Happy Holidays

Seasons Greetings from the GMS team……we wish you and your loved ones a safe, happy and peaceful festive season.

Now yellow autumn's leafy ruins lie In faded splendor, on deserted plains... ~Anne Hunter (1742–1821), "November, 1784"


The GMS staff here at Pueblo del Sol would like to send everyone warm wishes this Thanksgiving ...........this is a time to be thankful, a time to remember, and to embrace those who enrich our lives. 

"I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite—only a sense of existence." – Henry David Thoreau, In a Letter to Harrison Gray Otis Blake (December 6, 1856).

The Harvest Moon

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  -   1807-1882

It is the Harvest Moon! On gilded vanes
  And roofs of villages, on woodland crests
  And their aerial neighborhoods of nests
  Deserted, on the curtained window-panes
Of rooms where children sleep, on country lanes
  And harvest-fields, its mystic splendor rests!
  Gone are the birds that were our summer guests,
  With the last sheaves return the laboring wains!
All things are symbols: the external shows
  Of Nature have their image in the mind,
  As flowers and fruits and falling of the leaves;
The song-birds leave us at the summer's close,
  Only the empty nests are left behind,
  And pipings of the quail among the sheaves.
