Growing up we split our time between and island near Seattle and California where our family roots go back to 1850 and the gold rush in the Sierras. Homeschoolers foe years and have always had a healthy book budget no matter the economy. Love the feel and smell of a book in my hand, and prefer non fiction.
Love District 16 Bois de Boulogne in Paris, Stockholm Sweden's Archipelago, Christmas in Switzerland or here in the Sierras of California. And come January and February and great winter storms I love Orkney Island and Shetland Islands of Scotland.Have met some dumb folks with Masters Degrees and PhD's and some brilliant men and women who for whatever reason dropped out of school before or during high school. The world is a wonderful classroom if you allow yourself to be open to all the various lessons.
Voltaire once noted that 'Dis-moi qui vous admire et vous aime, et je vous dirai qui vous êtes' which means 'Tell me who admires you and loves you, and I will tell you who you are.'
