So where is the most fascinating place you have ever been? It would be fun to hear from you and to discuss it. Then maybe we could share your answers with other readers. My most fascinating place is Aphrodisias, which is in the Asian part of Turkey. This was an 8th century B.C. city named for Aphrodite, who was the Greek Goddess of Love, and it absolutely captured me with its stadium, theater, forum, temples, baths — and stories! Trying to project what life was actually like in this fascinating place continues to fill me with inspiration and wonder.
And what are your favorite books for children? If we do not help instill in our children a love of reading at a fairly young age, they will be deprived of one of life’s most fascinating and rewarding pleasures (and parenthetically their scores on the SAT and similar tests will truly suffer).
