in the very idea of serendipity is a kind of hope, even an expectation, that we can turn accidents of fortune to good account and make of them some knowledge that would have been inaccessible to us had we done no more than find what er were looking for.
–Alan Jacobs in The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction
i have been enjoying reading over at Knitting the Wind. i made my way over initially to read Sarah’s response to a piece Susan wrote about what it is children need to experience each day. at the bottom of each post, there are suggestions of other posts “you might also like.” and i did like them! i can’t wait to try these apple muffins or these honey oat cookies!
