Today is the first day of Great Lent, which starts the period leading up to Pascha. For Orthodox Christians, this is a really important and special time. This year I’ve decided to read juvenile & middle grade books, as well as some adult non-fiction. Right now I am re-reading Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s wonderful Gift From the Sea (prompted partly by a Twitter conversation with EWein). I’ll probably put some quotes from that on Tumblr, because it’s so, SO powerful.
But for this first week, I’ll probably be fairly quiet online. If you should need to reach me for some reason, feel free to send an email. As I said, I’ll probably be putting quotes on Tumblr and maybe checking Twitter a time or two. Real blogging will recommence next week, when I try to post reviews of all the books I’ve been reading and also go to a day of PLA and generally get overwhelmed and excited at the same time.
