Hi everyone! I’ve enjoyed reading your intros. I’m a homeschooling mom and professor in Colorado. I read The Golden Key last year and loved it, though I know I didn’t grasp all of it. Currently reading The Princess and the Goblin with my kids. I’m looking forward to reading Phantastes with all of you and learning more!
A stone wall unstacked;
An arrow toward the mark;
The arms where a child rests;
Spring wind whispering to a bare branch.
A weight set down.
An heir crying for blessing;
A tree lifting its leaves to the sun;
Hands cupped to receive;
A path known by heart.
I can’t help but notice Capon’s prejudicial attitude against cake. I’ve made both. I like both. Do we have to denigrate cake because it’s easier to make than pastry? Also, feel free to comment on your favorites here.

Hi! I’m Amy. I’m from Colorado. I’m a homeschooling mama to 3 boys (ages 6, 8, 8) and a part-time medical professor. Growing up, I loved making cookies with my sisters, and that’s still a special activity we do when we get together. As a few others have said, cooking for other people is one of my love languages!
My husband is allergic to c…[Read more]
I love that Niggle receives the gift of his tree, made “real,” but it’s not finished. He gets to continue his creating, this time with a medium that allows him to reach his goals, and an unlimited timeline. I’m so thankful that we get to do work in heaven, and that it won’t “subjected to frustration.”
It sounds a bit like a court (Niggle thinks it might be a Court of Inquiry). I think it is the Accuser and the Defender talking. The Defender gets the last word.

Hi! I’m Amy, and I live in Colorado. I’m a wife, a homeschooling mama to 3 boys, a part-time professor (of science-y stuff), a bookworm, and a person who loves words. I’m glad for a long-distance Hutchmoot so I can join in!
I’ve read this a few times, and read this as, “It’s a gift” TO him, from God. The gift of his creation come to life and made more than he could have hoped on his own. This is a beautiful piece of its meaning.
But I also think you can read it as “It IS a gift.” Niggle wasn’t even sure if painting was his gift at all. He wasn’t sure he had any…[Read more]
