Wonder Thoughts and a Winner

I just returned from a nourishing trip to St. Catharines, Ontario. The Wonder Together Retreat was  well done and encouraged  dialogue and community. It is so exciting to see these little pockets of interest in a CM education  slowly growing everywhere! I shared "wonder thoughts" throughout the day.

One of the things my hostess brought me to was the Stratford Festival!  I have heard about this town and the plays for so many years, it was a bit of a dream come true for me.  And Hamlet.  Oh, my.  That was good.

This little book was recommended to me by Sandy as an introduction to the Stratford Festival.  It is sweet and light and I am enjoying it.

Frances was a secretary for the PNEU in London.  She married G.K. Chesterton!

But really, you want to know all about who won the six volumes, right?  The winner is...

Wendy Drakw!   

Thank you all for participating.

  3. Good post and trip! I love Hamlet too. Every version. Even David Tennant and wish I had seen Jude Law as Hamlet.
    Good quote to make WONDER a life-long possession. Makoto Fujimura does the episode on WONDER in the documentary: For the Life of the World: Letters to Exiles. Excellent.

  4. Came over to get my bit o' Nancy! ;) Say, LOVE, LOVE Abigail Adams: A Leading Lady...thanks. Our other biography was such a slog! :) Hope you are doing well! :)
