I decided to make some stationery. I found an old book, that was falling apart. I thought how both books n' letters transport us. Both books n' letters have chapters. We write about our lives-in letters, they document moments in time.
Words plant seeds, in our souls and we are never the same- the wonder of the written word!
Do you remember the day you received your library card? I remember, what a big deal it was. I was given a passport to adventure! My plan was to read every book, in my story book cottage library. An old building made of stone and dedication. I especially wanted to read the big volumes I spied hiding behind the Librarian's desk. She wouldn't let children go back there. There was even a sign, no one under the age of 18 was allowed. The books were old, time worn and not for sticky, small fingers. I knew these books held mysteries and secrets from the past. Someday, I will go look at time's whispers.
I do think we are given a key to a secret garden, when we get our first library card and/or pen-pal.
Words like seeds are planted in our capillary bed and ideas sprout. Some bloom, some fade and yes, we also have to tend some weeds, along the way. For the most part, words gives us wings, and take us on many adventures. What adventure do you love the most?
Do you remember the day you were given the key, to the Secret Garden? Did you have a pen pal? At what age, did words first enchant you?
