To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life.
(W. Somerset Maugham)
A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.
Happy 101th Birthday Granny! You are always on my mind!
Note to Readers:
For those of you who might wonder, the lovely young woman's name in the banner was Madeleine born on 13 November, 1902.
A daughter of the sea as she liked to call herself (born and raised on the North Sea coast), she shared her endless passion for nature and animals with anyone she met.
Despite a 3rd grader education she was multi lingual. Her continuous thirst for knowledge was often challenged (She survived both WW1 and WW2, losing her home during each one) yet she continued to improve herself through reading!
She traveled the world until she passed away at age 93, all the while keeping journals to remember all that she saw.
Books were her refuge and her dream, to be a play-writer!
Always remembered, never forgotten!
