A Woman's Journey


On preparing to take a journey, I have been reading books.
The one just finished is Jenny Walton's Packing for a Woman's Journey
by Nancy Lindemeyer, the first Editor-in-Chief of Victoria Magazine.
You can visit Nancy at her blog: nancylindemeyer.blogspot.com
A paragraph that I enjoyed close to the end of the book:
"If our pages speak to the beauty of a woman's life through the artfulness of the things she has gathered about her, then we are dealing with intangibles that are not easy to quantify. When our country was settled, our foremothers took with them in those covered wagons moving west a teapot from home, candlesticks that had been in the family, a tablecloth embroidered by a great-grandmother in Europe. Holding on to these reminders of home and family gave them the courage to go on."

Have courage as we share together our journey.
