"Restlessness, from being a good servant, might become a hard master; indeed he sometimes does become so....the Daemon of Restlessness possesses [people], and they cannot settle to any kind of work or play because they always want to be doing something else. This is a very unfortunate state to get into, because it is only by going on doing one thing steadily that we learn to do it well, whether it be cricket or algebra; so it is well to be on the watch for the moment when Restlessness, the good servant, turns into Restlessness, the unquiet Daemon who drives us about from post to pillar, and will not give us firm standing ground anywhere in life." (Ourselves, p. 19 by Charlotte Mason)

Is school starting soon where you live?

Thanks for your card. No I've not done much reading or movie watching --- trouble focusing and often napping. Maybe I'm a tad restless as I wait for full recovery!

Good thought for reflection. I'm holding onto summer as long as I can! :) Amy
