I enjoy reading and studying 19th Century English Literature. I find the syntax fascinating. I also enjoy photography and travel, so learning about events from around the world greatly interests me. These are the reasons why I have created this type of Web log.

I have lived in three different countries and have found that the more you learn about different places, people and their customs and cultures, the more you understand our world. It is a remarkable world!

One quote I find worthy to mention here to emphasize my statement above is a quote I heard in the movie Iris. The character of Iris Murdoch, played by Dame Judi Dench said:

Education doesn’t make you happy, and nor does freedom. We don’t become happy just because we are free; if we are, or because we have been educated, if we have. But because education may be the means by which we realize we are happy. It opens our eyes, our ears. [It] tells us where delights are lurking [and] convinces us that there is only one freedom of any importance whatsoever; that of the mind, and gives us the assurance, the confidence to walk the path our mind . . . our educated mind, offers.

These words resonate each day for me to share with others things I learn. We can each touch a new part of our world by knowing where the ‘delights are lurking’. When you visit my blog you just might find some quotes ‘lurking’ on my blog. I want to share with you the wonderful things that I learn as I travel on the Web and in our world. For me, learning is like creating your own pyramid, where the base continues to widen and the sky is not the limit for its apex.

I hope you visit my site as much as you can because each visit is a promise of lots of great information to share. As you look into My Favorite Web Sites, you’ll see some really interesting sites that would take you on your personal tour of the world. Image your own personal tour! Just come with an open mind and the world is ALL YOURS!
