Strewing their paths...
Its that time of the week again. When we share our strewing.
My strewing this week had been both intentional and unintentional.
Intentional strewing...strewing with a purpose or with forethought .
This week it is a novel by Madeleine L'engle. A Wrinkle in Time.
I first read this at age twelve. I have read it aloud to classes I have taught. I have read it aloud to some of my kids and others have read it themselves.
Except Anthony. Who is sporadically studying physics, with occasional use of a Saxon Physics text and occasional reading of Six Easy Pieces by Dr Richard Feynman.
His interest is not high. Hence sporadic study. So I thought A Wrinkle in Time would be a good complement. Physics related literature and a darn good story. L'engle is a talented storyteller. And it just happens to be the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of A Wrinkle in Time this year!
Unintentional strewing? Strewing and sparks that happen in every day life, almost serendipitously.
Watching episodes of series one of Fringe, a Christmas gift. The science of the weird, of cloning, of regeneration and a FBI story to boot.
Fits in well with A Wrinkle in Time, doesn't it?
