Friday Sundries

This is my first weekly post of what I hope you’ll find to be juicy tidbits of this and that and that you’ll come back to visit!

Since I’m feeling a bit bookish today, surrounded by books in my office/sacred space – including the book I made my very own self! – I thought I’d share this quote from Carl Sagan:

 What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”

Oh yes, I surely am a book person!  I hope my bit of heaven, should I get there, is a cozy bookstore with a fireplace in the corner, comfy chairs, several bookstore cats and dogs, and a small cafe serving lots of Peets coffee (and tea for my bookish friends who prefer), and plenty of scones!
