Life is interconnected and so are the topics on this blog. It might be cooking and gardening one day, yoga the next, knitting and sewing, or hiking and then bird watching followed by recycling or composting. They are the parts that bring humble joy to my life of voluntary simplicity in Montana.

We'll Meet It When It Comes - Inspiration Thursday
"No good sittin' worryin' abou' it...What's comin' will come, an' we'll meet it when it does." - from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Never in my wildest dreams would I have expected to use Harry Potter quotes on Inspiration Thursday. But, then again, I didn't really ever expect to read Harry Potter at all. However, I did finally set to the series and you know what? I really do enjoy it as much as everyone always told me I would. I'm just not that into books about dragons, elves, wizards, and such, in general. Never the less, I am blazing through these Harry Potters. Or I should say we're blazing through them since Matt and I are having a little book club of two with the series. J.K. Rowling keeps me guessing to the very end. I'm quite enjoying it. And as I was reading I came across the above quoted line. Whoa...this is getting pretty deep here, I thought. As a person with tendencies toward needless worrying I was pretty taken with this hidden nugget of wisdom, coming from a half-human, half-giant, I might add... But, seriously, it made me stop and reread it several times. That's a good thing to remember, I thought. We'll meet it when it comes. That's good.
And now everyone can stop giving me that absolutely aghast "You've never read Harry Potter and you work in a library?!?" I couldn't begin to count how many times that has happened over the years....
