It’s raining, pure delight, and I’m with windmills, and the simplicity of the discovery that changed the world, and still can, and does.
Thinking about windmills brings me to the story of Don Quixote, “tilting” at windmills. It also reminds me of David Brooks inspiring book, “The Road to Character”. Brooks brings forth the lives of people who’ve influenced and changed our world. He mentions over and over again the wisdom obtained from the classics, novels by Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, George Eliot, and others.
I think now of these novels as windmills, harnessing the breath of great minds to grind and turn thought into path.
