The Good…

Sometimes gardening is the best medicine for the soul. It’s nice to take a break from everything else and watch the flowers grow, weed the garden beds, watch the lizards on the rocks, and listen to the birds sing.

I think that’s one of the reasons I love some of the works by John William Waterhouse so much. One of my favorites which I think reflects how it is – is called “My Sweet Rose“.

This morning my neighbor gave me some seeds to start a magnolia tree and I can’t wait to see the results, no matter how much time it takes to grow.

Currently I am reading and participating in a book discussion on The Victory of Reason.
Other books I have on hand:
The Catholic Church, A short History by Hans Kung (Thank you Dad ! if you ever read this)
The Aristotle Adventure by Burgess Laughlin
Mediaeval History by Carl Stephenson (Thanks to Morgan who knew how much I love history)
Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand by Leonard Peikoff (recently re-read Chapter 8 ! Virtue)

USSR A Concise History ! 4th Edition by Basil Dmytryshyn (Given to me by my brother and aids me on my quest of understanding some of the history between Russia and the Middle East ! which is a secondary interest I am pursuing as time avails.)

With all activities planned over the next few days, this is my Friday. Have a terrific weekend!

  1. I highly suggest reading the Hans Kung book on the Catholic Church. My reaction after plowing through it was one of sweet relief. Finally, a Christian who thinks!

  2. So far I’ve read the intro and part of chapter one, but can see this is going to be very enlightening! The book I’m reading right now is good, as a lover of history it’s nice to learn some new facts – but just how some progress is credited to Christianity is still not proven – IMO.

    Had a good talk with Dad about all of it. I’m really glad he sent the book. 🙂

    Will talk to you this weekend and I love you dearly!
