"We raked books off the shelves by the dozens and hauled them along on picnics, to haylofts, up oak trees, to bath and to bed. The one terrifying possibility was of finding oneself without a book." ~ Kathleen Norris, 1941
To find oneself without a book ... oh my, that would be terrible. I recognize the feeling completely. The one time I decide not to pop a book into my bag 'because I won't need it on this outing' is often the very time I find myself stuck, stalled, or otherwise in a waiting mode for something else to happen.
Which is why I decided to take the old American Express motto to heart and make it a non-negotiable rule: No matter where I go or how short a trip I think it'll be: Don't leave home without it.
So, to keep life beautiful even in the waiting moments ... don't leave home without it!
Wishing you a great day,
