Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Charlotte's Web

I'm reading Charlotte's Web to Ramona, and every time I reread this gem, I'm struck by something deeply delightful.

"From eleven to twelve, (Wilbur) planned to stand still and watch flies on the boards, watch bees in the clover, and watch swallows in the air."

More later, when I actually have time to blog.

Karen, I have an autobiography of E.B. White authored by a writer friend from up here in the hinterland of ND. It's a neat little book with photos of his life. "The Elements of a Writer" by E.B. White. I'd be happy to lend it to you. Email me your address if you'd like me to do that: rbsalonen@cableone.net.

Blessings and enjoy the rest of the read.

Not so long ago, I re-read it as well. When I was little, I wanted to be Charlotte. Now that I'm a grown-up, I'd rather be like Wilbur! :)
