If this post pops up as scheduled this afternoon, it means I’m off on an autumn adventure.  I’ll be back soon!

Only an open mind still has room for new knowledge.  What is outgrown and used up must be discarded to make room for what is yet to be learned.  And much of the best thinking is done alone — in deserts, on beaches, in bed, behind closed doors.  It is why we say we need to get away — to escape from clutter and busyness — to hear ourselves think.
