  1. This is interesting and I would like to read Stephen King’s introduction. I have read “Lord of the Flies” which seems more like today’s wild side than that of the times it was written in. Good quote, Gigi! 🌟

    • I read Lord of the Flies so long ago I barely remember it. So many books since then. I also wonder about Kings intro. I don’t read his books but still, it might be interesting to see what he said. THE ART OF QUOTATION has fabulous quotes everyday. Great blog. 🙂 Hope spring is making itself known by you. I see green leave popping up in the garden so there’s hope that things will warm up soon.

      • I found yellow forsythias along the creek that gets a lot of sun and a small yellow wildflower. In the nearby cemetery, I found a white blooming tree. . . Little signs that mean a lot, Gigi. hugs! 💞

  2. That’s so exciting. I love finding things like that. The buds on the trees are so big…I can’t wait to see a leaf. Every single year I watch to see the minute one unfolds but it’s like magic…a bud and then I turn around and all the leaves are open. LOL Magic.
