Good Morning Friends & Digital Neighbors! Mom claimed it was the first sentenced I learned: read a book. I sit in a room dotted with books, many read, many waiting. My readings seasons seem to vary as I age. I stil love words, and finding books with unsual words is always a fun adventure. Quotes are the same way - a good one can prime the pump. A great quote can ignite a fire and launch a quest. Here are a few for your consideration.
If the book we are reading does not wake us, as with the hammering on our skull, why then do we read it? A book should serve as an ice-axe to break the frozen sea within us. - Franz Kafka
Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. - Rudyard Kipling
I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I have lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well. - Diane Ackerman
Fr. Horrigan was a bit of a crank as old philosophy teachers go, but he was funny and insighful. He taught logic, metaphysics and a few hisotrical courses at the seminary. One of his quips when we were being introduced to new ideas was "Don't confuse me, I've already made up my mind." Good books, good ideas, and best of all, good questions, can make a profound difficerence on the path, at the destination and among all the sights along the way. Happy Tuesday Friends!

Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
