Chaos and John Ruskin

I spent two weeks in England recently. I went with my mother to John Ruskin's house - ah what a beautiful home and oh what a beautiful mind. I had dreamed of John Ruskin
a few months back - and I mentioned this to my mother "oh you must see his
home in the Lake District" came the reply. So we went - and how beautiful it
was. The Lake District is perhaps England's greatest wild treasure. A
stunning landscape which is perhaps best in the early spring when the lambs
are in playing the fields and the daffodils are emerging. And that is when I
went.
