be kind to animals and birds, and read all you can

I love that there are very few things that books cannot do. They can pluck you from under the covers and drop you into the outskirts of your imagination. They can rearrange the chemicals in your brain until you feel happy and uplifted, or wistful and nostalgic. They can with the careful placement of words side by side remind you of places you have seen in the dreams of your childhood that you thought you had long forgotten.

I would love to make one of these books my own. I feel like their beautiful exterior would inspire me in my quest to make the inside equally as magical.

  1. we make altered books in my art class… they act as our sketchbooks, and they are so inspiring. Mine is originally a book of cityscapes of NYC!

  2. I love what you’ve written here about books. I, too, am a believer in the power of careful composed writing. I’m going to repost this on my blog, with credit to you of course ;)
