"...explore something, even if it's just a bookshelf.
Make a stab in the dark.
Read off the beaten path."

  2. "Read off the beaten path..." Words to live by. I live the picture--one I would have used if I had found it...now I have!

    1. It is a great quote, isn't it? I love the picture, too. That's how I'd like to spend all my summers.

  3. I have had so much fun this year "reading off the beaten path". Sage advice, and a beautiful painting, too!
