“Our consciousness rarely registers the beginning of a growth within us any more than without us: There have been many circulations of the sap before we detect even the smallest sign of the bud,”
—George Eliot, Silas Marner

  1. Hi Kathy,

    I enjoyed catching up this morning. All of your posts are wonderful, as usual. I really enjoyed reading about Anne, and I'll keep my eyes open for her works.

    Thanks so much for stopping by to see me the other day.

    Hope your week is going great!

    Kathy M.

  2. Thank you for your kind comments, Kathy. I'm glad you've enjoyed the posts. Yes, definitely look for Anne's works--they're worth reading. Hope your week is (was) great, too, and that things are getting back to normal in your living room.

  3. Isn't George Eliot wonderful? I've only read Middlemarch, but she is someone whose work is worth exploring I think!

  4. I think so, too. I've read Silas Marner and Middlemarch, but need to explore more. And I know nothing about her personally.
