Oh, where have you been, charming Billy?
I have not been idle only absent from posting on this blog while writing regularly on Mainstreetrockymount.com, about architecture and preservation, the revitalization of Rocky Mount, NC. that includes the Saving of Main Street. The theme of this blog is Honoring the Past, Building a Future. It has been a wonderful experience that has enriched my life. I’m also finishing a third novel – A Garden of Sweet Disorder. I never forget you, and appreciate that you continue to keep reading what has already been posted. I’m going to renew my efforts to come back ‘home’ to you. Hold that thought and go and enjoy your books. What would our lives be without them?
I wanted to check in with a Churchill quotation that you will enjoy too. It was posted on a Facebook page I follow, The Queen’s English. I am going to follow through with Churchill’s suggestion. As I cast my eyes across the titles and where my books reside, they form the backdrop of my life and tell you a lot about who I am. You will know me by my books!
“If you cannot read all your books…fondle them—peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on the shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that you at least know where they are. Let them be your friends; let them, at any rate, be your acquaintances.”
~Sir Winston Churchill.
