“Every book, every volume you see here,

has a soul.  The soul of the person who wrote it

and of those who read it and lived and dreamed

with it.  Every time a book changes hands, every

time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its

Spirit grows and strengthens.

My diary is a mirror telling the story of a dreamer who, a long, long time ago went through life the way one reads a book.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you enjoy your visit.

books are the most patient of teachers

There are many wonderful things that come to those who wait, but so many involve others or are vastly out of our control.

A Great Love

A Better Job

Grief

Healing relationships with our Family

Health and Well-Being

Children and Grandchildren

A Computer

But, if a book is satisfying to me, I will wait until I get to the marvelous ending. If it does not appeal to me in some emotional or intellectual way, then reading six pages is too much and I know that I will never complete it.

Reading is the activity that does not demand anyone else’s permission to bring you to an enjoyable conclusion in the amount of time that you choose to wait willingly.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you enjoy your visit. I am busy re-reading the “Outlander” series by Diana Gabaldon right now.

Waiting Room

“But just then, for that fraction of time, it seems as though all things are possible. You can look across the limitations of your own life, and see that they are really nothing. In that moment when time stops, it is as though you know you could undertake any venture, complete it and come back to yourself, to find the world unchanged, and everything just as you left it a moment before. And it’s as though knowing that everything is possible, suddenly nothing is necessary.”
― Diana Gabaldon, Outlander

Widely considered Scotland’s most photographed site, Eilean Donan Castle perches on an island at the meeting of three lochs in western Scotland. The island’s first castle was an early 13th-century fortification against raiding Vikings, and it’s been sacked and rebuilt several times. The most recent facelift was completed in 1932.
