that I like to have a book or two by my side,
to keep me company, to set me straight.
It could also be that I tend to sit in so much
traffic these days that it makes the minutes and hours
pass by sweetly.
One of those books, was given to me by a dear friend.
It was a parting gift to remember my time living in Australia.
It has been several years and I still think of her every time I turn a page.
The author of the book is an Australian, Kate Llewellyn.
Playing with Water
A story of a garden
It's quite simple, she buys a house in a coastal town,
and creates a garden. As she sets roots in her new community
her plantings are following suit.
Kate Llewellyn is a gifted writer and
manages to transport me from the hum drum of a
traffic snarl to feeling grass underfoot, dirt on my fingertips
When I sit and read, I take pen to paper. I do it with all the books I love.
A scribble here and there to remember my favourite passages.
I like to be able to find those few special words at a moment's notice.
Houses are like marriages......
A barefoot good Samaritan and a chocolate cake....
What glorious days are these....
How about you, do you have a book or two
to keep you company?
