Here's a bookcase with no rhyme or reason to it and a few memorable lines of Dickinson. No plans for today? Need suggestions? Take a walk(wear blaze orange around here), pet a cat, visit a college, rearrange lights on an outside tree, write some rhyme, split some wood, finish the painting, plan a trip, close the laptop...
He ate and drank the precious words,
His spirit grew robust;
He knew no more that he was poor,
Nor that his frame was dust.
He danced along the dingy days,
And this bequest of wings
Was but a book. What liberty
A loosened spirit brings!
- Emily Dickinson
Great poem by Ms. Dickinson. Love her words.ReplyDelete
First time I'd read that poem, I like it.ReplyDelete
I've been a book addict since I was a kid. Very glad that libraries exist or I couldn't afford my addiction!
A fine post. And all these things start with closing the laptop. Not easy.ReplyDelete
Nice poem to go with your photo today. So true. And call me old school but I still love books -- no Kindle for me.ReplyDelete
I love this photo and the wonderful advice!ReplyDelete
Great shot and words by Emily Dickinson. I love to read and also to get lost in the library or even better an old and dusty used book store. MBReplyDelete
Fine, fine books and a fine, fine post. . .ReplyDelete
The pool post was fabulous. So solitary....... abandoned this time of year. Love today's shot and words. These days, I'm enjoying the words of our CDP bloggers almost as much as the photos! Hope you are out taking your own advice!ReplyDelete
Inviting book spines, thoughtful poem and a good list. If we followed up on just a few items on your list, today would be rich.ReplyDelete
Petting a cat ...everyday...it's wonderful and you can be very relaxed after it! :)ReplyDelete
Have a nice Sunday
You have some well-loved bindings here today. Nice shot and love Emily : )ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous shot! Something about this shot makes me want to rush right off to an old library.ReplyDelete
Good idea for a photo. I like the lines of color.ReplyDelete
How about dinner with friends?ReplyDelete
I think the most important suggestion and one that makes all the others possible is "close the laptop"! :-)ReplyDelete
