Since “Inspiration” is (or should) the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?
A house overflowing with books, a job in a university library with more than a million volumes and a nearby public library system with at least that many as well; book-sized packages left on the front porch by the postal system and UPS; book lists and book blogs and message boards devoted to books; the desire to be entertained and educated and enthralled; the capacity to enter into another's mind; the need for more voices inside my own head.
Just life itself. Everything.
