Books are my best friends and give back so much in return. I gather, collect, build, disperse, and, through it all, relish this pilgrimage towards Truth in which we are all participating. I'm a firm believer in book learning, balanced with real life experience, which is a way to truly discern what is Good, True, and Beautiful through camaraderie and participation with the past. There is "nothing new under the sun," so it is said, for all our good works and creations are built upon a firm foundation of the past - shoulders of giants - stretching far back to the beginning of time. Reading is my way to keep in touch with that past, and helps to remind me of how I can persevere for the future - to learn, grow, plan, build, but, ultimately, to trust. Gratia Dei, ad gloriam Dei.
