“I don’t know what rituals my kids will carry into adulthood, whether they’ll grow up attached to homemade pizza on Friday nights, or the scent of peppers roasting over a fire, or what. I do know that flavors work their own ways under the skin, into the heart of longing. Where my kids are concerned I find myself hoping for the simplest things: that if someday they crave orchards where their kids can climb into the branches and steal apples, the world will have trees enough with arms to receive them.” – Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
{There are so many passages, poems and pieces that are near and dear to my heart, that have held my hand through joy and sorrow, and I’d like to make some space for them here on this blog. I’ve been enjoying the Silent Sunday that so many people post, like here and here so I decided to join the club, and use this time to share some of my favorite works.}

  1. Ooh, I love Barbara Kingsolver. I dog-eared so many pages (which my father always told me NOT to do) of The Poisonwood Bible to make note of touching or thought-provoking quotes.
    I look forward to more of your favorite works. :)

  2. I’m so glad you decided to do a Silent Sunday and show off some of your work. I sure love it! Happy Earth Day x
