  1. Oh yes... so true. So very true.

  2. And yet so many don't have this, and are bored. :<)

  3. I love the quote. This year my journal was full of old paintings of women reading and quotes.

    The banner is eye popping.

    Just lovely.

    P.S. I took part in the Persephone Challenge for this week that you referred to from your blog

  4. I sure wish I'd known of that quote when my teen step-daughter would say she was bored. Once she got to high school though, she was never lacking for things to do or read. I may just share this quote with her anyway.

    Thanks again for stopping by my little blog, Nan. I wrote an additional comment there to say that Brandy was very old and passed away the following Spring.

    Have a wonderful day.

  5. Christy, I got the quote from my desk engagement calendar - The Reading Woman, Museum of Fine Arts Boston. A painting by Mary Cassatt accompanies the quote on this last week in August. Thanks about the banner - I love all those bright, bright colors together. I am on the early pages of Cheerful Weather for the Wedding - it is a short book and I thought I'd go right through it but her descriptions are so, so good that I'm reading it very slowly.

    Conny, I don't think I've had a bored moment in my life, unless I was somewhere without a book. :<) (I just wrote back about Brandy)

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
