love of nature, silence, solitude

  1. I am very pleased to have found this site, thanks to Gabrielle. I've added it to my favourites list which means I'll visit daily and try to catch up on some of the earlier posts, while also reading The Seven Storey Mountain, which I received in the post last week.

  2. You can count me as a "regular" also.
    I've been buzzing all over this site, soaking up everything I can.
    It's just awesome!

  3. gosh - I'm honored that y'all like the site. Merton is an endless well of inspiration for me, and I never tire of reading him or about him - or talking about him and his writings :-) THanks for your comments.
