Hiking this weekend. It was Narnia the whole way.

I listened to John O'Donohue speak on one of my favorite podcasts, On Being.
He spoke about beauty, and real friendships, and mentioned Blais Pascal, who said

"In difficult times you should always carry something beautiful in your mind."

-Charlotte Bronte (from Villette)

and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day,
listening to the murmur of water or watching the clouds float across the sky
is by no means a waste of time."

John Lubbock
