Books To Take Us Away
“There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away . . .” opens a poem by Emily Dickinson. A frigate is a ship, originally moved by oars. These days a frigate is warship. But I think Miss Dickinson had in mind more of a cruise liner than a warship when she wrote that poem. For most of us, seeing the world, meeting lots and lots of people, having new and exciting adventures sounds like fun.
