In my Commonplace...
"Perhaps there is some secret sort of homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers."
"That's what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you onto another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It's geometrically progressive--all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment."

I think that hold true, not just for reading living books, but for nature study, picture study, composer study, poet study, handicrafts, and all the wide and varied things we do during the day!

A wee explanation: this website was created as a way to amplify the daily surprise of seeing glory in one small life. The notebook entries represented here are all selected from things actually lived and noted on paper in an effort to live the full life British educator Charlotte Mason so ably championed.
