Imagine we are getting lost in a magical story woven from a fantasy and wrapped in delicious excitement. A book is a feast for our imagination, an escape to another world. In every book we get to be transported into a new land, a new possibility.
In today’s world we tend to read on a device, listen to books-on-tape or simply watch it after the story has been modified into a movie. It’s easier that way and requires less of us. But there is something tactile about holding a book in our hands and seeing the words unfold as it creates its new world for us. It requires a longer attention span but the rewards are enormous; the expansion, the learning and the sheer joy of taking that journey within our minds. We share that journey with the author. It is his or her gift to us and we are accepting the invitation to walk with them.
In a book, possibilities are truly endless, infinite; science fiction, romance, autobiography, history, cooking, mystery, action, gardening…. And every book holds the time, effort, knowledge, vibration and imagination of its author. Whether we have 10 books on a shelf or a thousand in a home library, they grace our space – each a present, an offering.
Every book has its own color, size, age, memory and feel. As a group, they inform a space with knowledge, style, wisdom and heart. Each gift is there to be cherished, loved and respected as an act of creativity, an offering from its creator and a vessel of sapience. Filling our home with these pieces of talent brings a special energy, an opportunity to open one and drift away to a world created especially for us in this moment.
