Not to mention...

When writing about books I forgot to mention the four books I always have with me... the ones that got me here in the first place, that seem to be stuck in my heart and mind and even my soul: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  Those Gospel guys... whose stories I never tire of hearing, whose lead character I couldn't shake even if I wanted to. Those books go with me everywhere. They never cease to amaze, provoke, inspire, move and shake.

Quote of the day, from Daniel Kahneman's Thinking, Fast and Slow: "...a puzzling limitation of our mind: our excessive confidence in what we believe we know, and our apparent inability to acknowledge the full extent of our ignorance and the uncertainty of the world we live in."
