Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Reading lists

I love books. I have hundreds upstairs and can't seem to stop collecting them. No matter how many I get though have some that I keep coming back to and re-reading. Here is my top ten list of books I would keep if I had to get rid of all the rest.

CRYPTONOMICON by Neal Stephenson

The Nature of personal Reality by Jane Roberts

ILLUSIONS by Richard Bach

Cloud Hidden, Whereabouts unknown by Alan Watts

TAO, The Watercourse Way by Alan Watts

Zen in the martial arts by Joe Hyams

The Art of Peace by Morihei Ueshiba

Mountain Man by Vardis Fisher

House by Tracy Kidder

Dispatches by Michael Herr

That is my list. I would be interested to see what you would pick for inclusion on your list!

Ooh, a reading list! So many books, so little ime. My to-read list at my bedside has 9 books in it currently. My current read is
"Seeking Peace: Chronicles of the Worst Buddhist in the World" by Mary Pipher

I'll have to give it some thought & get back to you on that...
