It snowed a bit more today, what is there to say?

Actually, I spent a good bit of time cleaning some bookshelves inside, badly needed! I always enjoy the old books. So many of them have such elegant bindings, true pieces of decorative art. I know the Kindle or whatnot makes a great deal of sense; but….you can’t help but realize the value of the written word when it is presented in embossed, painted, gilt leather with an incredibly ornate design. This was Work and valued.

Do we take literacy for granted?
