Quote of the Day: Rick Gekoski

Oh, it is so dreary today!  Absolutely dreary.

Which, self has to say, is doing wonders for her blogging energy.

During a lull in the rainclouds, self ventured to the backyard for an inspection of her plants.  She’d no sooner set garden clog on soggy earth than the heavens re-opened.

Is this self’s fourth post of the day?

Must be.

Here’s something self stumbled upon in the Spectator Book Club, a quote from Rick Gekoski by Selina Hastings, in her review of Gekoski’s 2009 book, Outside of a Dog:  A Bibliomemoir

Every reading experience vibrates subtly across the jelly of being.

Isn’t that such a wonderful sentence?  Doesn’t it capture so exactly the wonder of reading?  How it can transform your life, your everyday mundane dull otherwise un-exciting life?

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
