On a recent morning, a visitor to Centerbrook Architects stood with 3-D glasses, not simply viewing, but virtually walking through a meditation garden Dan Batt is in charge of designing for the Basilica of St. John the Evangelist in Stamford.

Wisdom doesn’t go out of style, so what Roman orator and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero wrote some 2,000 years ago works well for Elizabeth Bartlett today: If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. Cicero did and so does Elizabeth Bartlett. (Okay, Latin enthusiasts, here it is: Si hortum in bibliotheca habes, deerit nihil.)

After moving to Deep River in 1978, Roy Jefferson immersed himself in a community that soon taught him what a great benefit it is to live in a small town. He says small-town life is like a book: it’s unwritten and you have to find what suits you to fill the pages.
