Poetry, notes, and drawings by William Michaelian
It would seem that you had a nice day at the used book store yesterday. I'll bet that you will find a place for these wonderful books as you have the others, and will make room for even more books in the future. You may have to build on an addition to your home, William. Have you ever given thought to a cottage for only your books? Your library? I can picture it in my mind...lovely. And what a heavenly aroma as you enter thru it's door~~~
Jan, it was a great trip. We were there four hours, and for every book we brought home, there were at least a dozen — no, make that a hundred — we left behind. In the meantime, the question arises: Do I really need that chair?...
I'm sure finding a place for your new treasures is surely the least of your problems William.... : )
Ha! It’s one of my favorites, I know that much....
What a heavy load...I hope that the weather is not too hot over there??Sweet reading!!!!
Thanks, Monika! It’s warm here, but not nearly as warm as other parts of the country. But the shade still feels good....Thanks, Jhon. I’ll go into more detail on some of them in future entries....
I liked clicking onto the photo to see how really beautiful and well-maintained these books are.But then again, I even like the Word Verification for this comment:"Malintef"Maybe somebody put something in my water.
Ah, of course! From Cornelius Tacitus: figlia d' un malintef....No, don’t ask.
Sad to think of why and how someone would have been brought to parting with these. Such great finds, William. And even greater friends.
I feel the same way, Gabriella, as you know, and imagining the circumstances is part of what makes these trips to the bookstore such a rich experience, especially when I read some of the heartfelt messages scrawled on the inside cover, or the notes in the margins.
