"Doesn't it seem to you," asked Madame Bovary, "that the mind moves more freely in the presence of that boundless expanse, that the sight of it elevates the soul and gives rise to thoughts of the infinite and the ideal?" ~Gustave Flaubert
Earlier this week, I took a train to Oregon for a few days. Seeing the coast was a bonus. The ocean in windy, rainy weather is still just as beautiful as ever. On the train ride home, I read an article in the New York Times titled The Joy of Quiet by Pico Iyer. It was wonderful as well as thought provoking. Cheers to January.
