Thank you Nancy, this was a wonderful article. I'll be going back to that part of Vol. 6 to read CM's words, but you have confirmed for me that the child will make the connections if we provide for them the good, true, and beautiful in our "books and things" and in the atmosphere of our lives.
A wonderful article. Reaching past the materialistic, utilitarian outcomes and into the heart.
