“We should read to give our souls a chance to luxuriate.”
~ Henry Miller
Basking in the sun is sporadic these days as the weather cannot decide on what season we’re in this month.
Today and tomorrow will be indoorsy due to thunderstorms, which lets me catch up on my reading stash. Somehow the study of Greek life as described by historic writers and the comparison of ancient Goddesses provide me with similar common threads, which answer some of the questions the previous Mythology books had raised.
“From every book invisible threads reach out to other books;
and as the mind comes to use and control those threads
the whole panorama of the world’s life, past and present,
becomes constantly more varied and interesting,
while at the same time the mind’s own powers
of reflection and judgment are exercised and strengthened.”
~ Helen E. Haines
Kitty is loving the lap time.
“I often derive a peculiar satisfaction in conversing with
the ancient and modern dead,
– who yet live and speak excellently in their works.
My neighbors think me often alone, – and yet at such times
I am in company with more than five hundred mutes –
each of whom, at my pleasure, communicates his ideas to meÂ by dumb signs – quite as intelligently
as any person living can do by uttering of words.”
~ Laurence Sterne
