A book is a literary compass that has the potential to direct our thoughts and actions:

"Everything we read stimulates our mind to think, and what we think determines what we desire, and desires are the seedbed of our actions. Given this iron law of human nature--from reading to thinking, to desiring, to acting--we are shaping our destiny by the ideas we choose to have enter our minds through print." - Fr. John Hardon, S.J., The Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan

Welcome to my own personal exploration of life through reading the great books of the world.

Notre Dame Trip Day 2

Today we're in the small town of Jackson, Minnesota, after driving 660 miles yesterday. The weather was much nicer today--no one was struck by lightning. Highlights from yesterday's travel:
  • Mount Rushmore: An awe-inspiring sight to those of us who had never seen it before.
  • A brief glimpse of the badlands: we could see the edges of the badlands from the freeway. I'd like to come back some day to take a closer look.
  • Sights we didn't get to see, but wanted to: the corn palace in Mitchell, SD, 1880 Town, the Reptile Gardens
We leave for Notre Dame in about an hour. We crossed into the mountain time zone on Saturday, we went into central time yesterday, and by the end of our driving today we'll be in eastern time. Today's drive is shorter, 588 miles. More updates later.
