I've been reading a lot and neglecting my writing but it's summer! So I share five outstanding books: On Faith: Lessons from an American Believer by Antonin Scalia; Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson; Eat, Fast, Feast: Heal Your Body While Feeding Your Soul--a Christian Guide to Fasting by Jay Richards; Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science by Judy Mikovits and Kent Heckenlively; and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. 

What all these books share is common sense, something I've not seen in our public life in quite a while. It's so refreshing to read arguments for faith and reason, living a life of temperance, of courage, and hope. Yes, even the Alchemist! 

I have much more to say but my Dagny is coming home tonight instead of already being here, so pray her flight isn't canceled again. At least she's made it back to the US. There's no place like home!

While you've been neglecting/taking a break from writing, I seem to have that issue with reading. I can't use summer as an excuse.

Mirka, together we'd make a great team for reading and writing! I'm glad you're writing though--if I go too many days without it, I became a crankypants.

Where did Dagny go? You probably mentioned it but I forgot. Hope she's home safely by now.

I've ordered Beyond Order from my local library but it is so popular that they said I probably wont get it for eleven weeks!
