Just Half Way Across

"Louis Aggasiz, H*rvard's renowned biologist, returned one September to his classroom and announced to his students that he had spent the summer traveling. He had managed, he said, to get halfway across his backyard. To those with eyes to see, that's enough. Everywhere we turn, wonders never cease." (Mark Buchanan in The Rest of God.)

More: "... Calm, unhurried people who live in a moment fully, savoring the simple things, celebrating small epiphanies, unafraid of life's inevitable surprises and reverses, adaptive to change, not chasing after it ..."

We are reading The Rest of God for our bookclub next week ... there's so much to savor and think about. Looking forward to discussing, and feasting on fall soups, salad, and bread, and to a new blogging friend joining us! More later!

  2. I love to vacation at home!


  3. I think a book club would be so much fun! I enjoyed catching up with you tonight. Little one has grown - she is so cute!
    Take care,


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
