I know. It has been awhile since I have graced these pages with my presence. Suffice it to say that Sept. and Oct. are busy months for us. In all of this busyness, though, I have been reading bits and pieces of G.K.Chesterton. During one of our traveling adventures this summer I found A Year With G.K.Chesterton: 365 Days of Wisdom, Wit and Wonder edited by Kevin Belmonte. I didn’t have much of a chance to read it when I first bought it but now, in trying to establish a morning routine, I have read a few pages and the words have brought me delight.
What will the modern world do if it finds (as very likely it will) that the wildest of fables have had a basis in fact; that there are creatures of the border land, that there are oddities on the fringe of fixed laws, that there are things so unnatural as easily to be called preternatural? I do not know what the modern world will do about these things. I only know what I hope. I hope the modern world will be as sane about these things as the medieval world was about them. Because I believe that an ogre can have two heads, that is no reason why I should lose the only head that I have. — taken from The Uses of Diversity.
