:: shaping our very essence... ::

" I think the first reason we read is to shape our very essence,

to form the selves from which we act.

We read first to shape the person inside,

to outfit their inner landscape

of imagination and expectation

from which we look out upon the world,

and that is a world in great need of beauty."

{Sarah Clarkson}

For the beauty

between the pages,

the sighs and quivers of the soul.

To let ones heart expand and exult

in this realm of majesty,

this inner landscape of the soul.

To look upon the world with keen eyes,

open attentiveness and a

quiet heart.

In this, the reading life.
