March 2 Bookstores, Bits and Bravery
I have a thing for book stores. The smell, the lighting, the mood, and the quiet whispers carefully reflecting from pages and sneaking around corners to find their rightful owners …
This is where I go to collect my thoughts, to recapture my muse, to feel whole again. In the digital Renaissance, book stores march along boldly .. into the valley of death? I do hope not.
Today, I am thankful for these things that keep me grounded:
- Bookstores – lovingly maintained and housing the richness of spirit that deserves a place to rest.
- Digital bits that course through networks and bring me face to face with a Holocaust survivor, allow me to hear her story first hand and let it shake me to my core.
- The bravery of people who have been persecuted but stand up to face of their fears to speak out against what is incomprehensibly and unconscionably human behavior.
For what are you thankful?
