A Comfit Box

You can either print this box out in color or print a template to trace on to fancy paper. With good paper and gold stickers they would make lovely wedding or party favors.






Hello and hello!

How are things in your neck of the woods? Good I hope! It's been all rushing around about books here, making books, reading books, painting library murals, talking at schools to kids about books. My grandmother used to say, "If you can read you can do anything."

Is there a library that you like to visit? They are filling stations for your mind.

Best thoughts,


"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.




The Right Kind of People
By: Edwin Markham

Gone the city, gone the day,
Yet still the story and the meaning stay:
Once where a prophet in the palm shade based,
A traveler chanced at noon to rest his mules.

“What sort of people may they be,” he asked,
“in this proud city on the plains o’erspread?”
“Well, friend, what sort of people whence you came?”
“What sort?” the packman scowled; “why, knaves and fools!”
“You’ll find the people here the same,” the wise man said.

Another stranger in the dusk drew near,
And pausing, cried, “What sort of people here
in your bright city where yon towers arise?”
“Well, friend, what sort of people whence you came?”
“What sort?” the pilgrim smiled, “Good, true, and wise.”
“You’ll find the people here the same,” the wise man said.

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You, too? Thought I was the only one. ~ C.S. Lewis
