Quote of the Day: C.S. Lewis

September 26th, 2010

for solitude, silence, and private:
and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship.”

C.S. Lewis (The Weight of Glory)

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
