"I was so busy rushing headlong into the future, loving libraries and
books and authors with all my heart and soul, was so consumed
with becoming myself that I simply didn't notice that I was short,
homely and untalented."

     From the introduction to Bradbury Stories ( William Morrow publ.)
                             by Ray Bradbury

Since retiring in May this is the first time I have the luxury of  
sitting down at home and fiddling with my books. It seems to 
be a time to read, think and look, both forward and backward.
My books; mirrors to the reflections, loves, lives of so many 
others, both real and imagined, help as well.

"We live forward, but understand backwards'

                       from Reading Dante: From Here to Eternity
by Prue Shaw

Guy, I am frequently finding myself in this same contemplative place! I wish you well!

Hi Kathie

I guess that comes with the territory.

All the best.
