The Humble & Astonishing...

"It's a flat object made from a tree
with flexible parts on which are impirinted
lots of unny dark squiggles. But one
glance at it and you're inside the mind of
another person, maybe somebody dead for
thousands of years. Across the millennia,
an author is speaking clearly and silently
inside your head, directly to you. Writing
is perhaps the greatest of human
inventions, binding together people who
never knew each other, citizens of distant
epochs. Books break the shackles of time.
A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic."
-Carl Sagan 

A dear friend recently texted this to me, a reminder, an inspiration, a bit of possibility, a bit of love.
