Thoughts of Home
I'd like to invite you to take a peek here.
This is a blog that I stop by almost daily. Debra has lots of the same thoughts and ideas that I have but she goes beyond the thinking and actually takes action. I live vicariously through her mid-century small town ideals and healthy living vision. Someday I hope I'll actually go beyond the thinking.
A while back Debra reccomended a book called Thoughts of Home. I went to Amazon.com to purchase a used copy for $5 a few weeks back and it has been the sweetest read for my nightly bedtime unwind. The book is actually a collection of essays from House Beautiful magazine about, well, thoughts of home. Few books have been so soothing to me at the end of long and tired days and inspired me to truly reach for the sweetness of life that costs nothing and lasts forever.
I'd like to propose a blogger's book club and perhaps we can start off with this wonderful little book together. I'm pretty sure you'll need to get it on Amazon too because it's far off the beaten path with a 1995 copyright. It is edited by Elaine Greene. There are several copies available and I'm very happy with my cheapo used edition. I had considered reading it and passing it on but I like it so much it's now become a permanent member of my library. Go get your own.
So if you're interested, let us all know. Maybe we'll start a regular old-fashioned-home-loving-Jesus-serving book club in cyber space. Who needs Oprah?
