... C.S. Lewis

"Those of us who have been true readers all our lives seldom realize the enormous extension of our being we owe to authors. We realize it best when we talk with an unliterary friend. He may be full of goodness and good sense by he inhabits a tiny world. In it, we should be suffocated. The man who is contented to be only himself, and therefore less a self, is in prison. My own eyes are not enough for me, I will see through those of others." C.S. Lewis An Experiment in Criticism

I imagine much of my posting will be about books... or food... but, Iots of quotes and such. I can relate to my friend Jack in that I "see through those of others". I've enjoyed a life time of reading... of letting authors & theologians, teachers & artists become my friends and therefore help to mold me into the person I'm becoming. The world is huge, it branches out far beyond my limited knowledge or understanding. I like being connected in any way I can... through literature, photographs, travel, learning. I hunger for it. I ask lots of questions. And I google everything else.

So, join me if you like. I always love company. And, I promise, it won't be all that serious. If you know me at all, you know laughter and joking are common place in my world.
