Perhaps, after all, our best thoughts come when we are alone. It is good to listen, not to voices but to the wind blowing, to the brook running cool over polished stones, to bees drowsy with the weight of pollen. If we attend to the music of the earth, we reach serenity. And then, in some unexplained way, we share it with others. ~Gladys Taber
Last January, I wrote a post about the books of Gladys Taber. Just the other day, I received another comment on that post from Shelley, who suggested that I might want to visit her website, Welcome to Gladys Taber's Stillmeadow, a tribute to Gladys that was started by Susan E. Stanley and continued by Shelley when Susan died in 2007. [Note: I'm sorry to see that this link no longer works. CZ, 4/14/10].
I'm so glad that I visited--it's a lovely site with lot of photos and memories of Gladys, information about her books, and a wonderful video of the animals at Stillmeadow, the Connecticut farm where Gladys lived and wrote for so many years. You can even see Gladys' family tree.
Here are some other links to sites about the well-loved author.
