Education is the Science of Relations ... so's baking

Charlotte Mason, a woman brilliant in her day, "ahead" of her time (which, in my opinion, means we moderns are surprised to find her relevant -- sheer hubris), made several good statements of educational fact.

and she was right about this. Understanding the relationship between one thing and another is what makes musical intervals, healthy bodily habits, poetry, horticulture, and commandments functional. Nothing works without proper relationships. And that includes the baking of a loaf of bread.Rarely do I purchase brand new books, and even more rarely do I purchase these books in hardcover.
