Reading well adds to our life—not in the way a tool from the hardware store adds to our life, for a tool does us no good once lost or broken, but in the way a friendship adds to our life, altering us forever.”

Karen Swallow Prior, On Reading Well: Finding the Good Life through Great Books

I reflect, and write in this space, about how my book habit has gotten somewhat out of control.

Then, I spend the morning writing. Gerry and I go out for lunch, do a bit of shopping, and stop by the annual second-hand book sale that supports our local symphony. I do my civic duty and purchase a few books.

No apologies.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
