Exquisite Afternoon Sally Rosenbaum
Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the
two most beautiful words in the English language. ~Henry James
A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. ~Chinese Proverb
Books – the best antidote against the marsh-gas of boredom and vacuity. ~George Steiner
No man can be called friendless who has God and the companionship of good books. ~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
My brother and SIL are going to an event in Maine tonight – they will hear David McCullough and his daughter Dorie McCullough Lawson speak. In my mind, this ranks right up there with hearing Yo-Yo Ma play the cello in person. I get many vicarious thrills through my siblings.
What event have you been thrilled about attending? Or which would you love to go to?
