I try to make time in the day to sit down with a cup of tea and read. In the right sidebar are some of my favorite blogs, and below you may find a note on a book I'm currently reading, or have recently read, or perhaps a quote or bit of poetry...whatever suits my fancy. ~Dori

"When despair grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free."

 It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.
