MacNolia by A. Van Jordan is a wonderful poetry collection worth reading many times. It reads like a novel because the author provides a fairly integrated story imagined by Jordan but based on a real life event. He doles out the background informatio ...more

I have read a number of WW11 books and really wasn’t interested in reading another but all the hype and favourable comments about The Nightingale changed my mind. I figured there must be something good about the book to create all the buzz about it; ...more
Still Life by Louise Penny
"This book (#1 in her Inspector Armand Gamache series) has been much-hyped in my Goodreads circle, and by the always-reliable Margaret Cannon in her Mystery Panel appearances on The Next Chapter. It absolutely did not disappoint. The writing is won..." Read more of this review »

Maya Angelou
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Maya Angelou

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

Louise Penny
“Or - perhaps - I should just worry about my own behavior and let others be who they are.”
Louise Penny

T.S. Eliot
“Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.”
T.S. Eliot

Wendell Berry
“The Peace of Wild Things

When despair for the world 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 with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”
Wendell Berry, The Selected Poems of Wendell Berry
