Enlightening Literature

Posted by on March 22, 2012

One of my all time favorite stories, is the “Little Prince”, written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and when it’s an awkward moment in conversation, I usually revert to the phrase “Flowers have been growing thorns for millions of years”.

Little do my children realize, that my intention of subliminal education that transcends my temporary leave from formal homeschooling, is to subject them to the great works, including this one.  Why, as I type currently, they are listening to the opera version of the Little Prince, courtesy of the local public library.

Other notable works, are Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien, the Narnia series by C.S. Lewis, Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, and other reasonable movie and books.

Why even my favorite science fiction comedy of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, is one the staples, alongside the Victor Borge comedies.

It seems natural to share those beloved stories with one’s own family and friends, and of course, I enjoy and encourage a good conversation about various elements, like plot, character, theme, and setting.  And of course, simple statements of likes or dislikes are always welcome topics of discussion, whether at formal gatherings like family meals, or informally, like walks.

Anyways, this is more of a brief introduction about review of good books, movies, and music that I hope to present here, and through my other domain web and blog sites.

I sincerely that hope that you take time to read the best books, including the holy scriptures, and other significant material in traditional and multimedia formats.

You comments are most welcome here and upon approval, will be posted accordingly.

    I confess to not knowing a lot of Victor Borge, but this is my favourite:
