The Cottage on the Moor is a place where I'll keep a fire going on cold winter nights and a breeze flowing through the windows on steamy summer days. There will be a "cup of warm" waiting for you to stimulate your mind. I'll try to keep it fresh by adding something every week or two. So come often. I hope you find something you enjoy.

The Answer Lies in a Good Question
by Jim Rapp
A wise teacher used to ask his students many questions,
believing they intuitively knew
To teach bare facts without contextualization,
merely built a store of knowledge that he knew
would seldom frame an answer.
But questions asked of one – by one – in consternation
make him call to mind things he learned to do
when last he felt the pincer.
If one would know why he had suffered indigestion,
he need but ask the questions pointing to
the food dispenser.
