Thought for the Day

” . . . for some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”

-Anne Lamott, from p. 15 of Bird by Bird

  1. That is a beautiful quote! Is this your library that’s next to your bed that Jeff teased you about, lol…..

    1. Ha, no . . . this photo was actually one taken in 2010, when I was living in the studio with the great view of the downtown Minneapolis skyline.

      And believe it or not, we got a special dresser designated especially for the storage of my journals so that I no longer have to store them under the bed! 😉
