book lovers

World Book Day!

I resonate to this:

"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."

― Jorge Luis Borges

Our weather continues exquisite.  I know it is not spring everywhere, but here, people can only exclaim.  Yesterday there were the most amazing clouds, all levels and kind of clouds, forming and re-forming.  I kept seeing hearts in the sky.  We have blue sky today, and yesterday I realized we get amazing patterns of fog, but fluffy white clouds that turn dark and play with color, not so much, and so it seems, where I live is in deep appreciation of sky, birds, green.  I now have two sheep living next door, a male and a female, and it is spring, so I welcome what comes.

I am with these words of

William Blake:

           "We are here to learn the beams of love."

It is certainly easy on a day like today.

bobby1933 posted about this: and I am intrigued and have now ordered one of her books.

Dawn Prince-Hughes has Aspergers.  Here is her experience with Congo, a Silverback male gorilla, as they communicate through a sheet of glass at the Seattle zoo.

I probably stayed with him like that, with my head on his shoulder, for 30 minutes or so. I think it was probably the first time I was genuinely comforted by another person. Congo really set the standard for what social interactions should be like between me and another living being. You just can't worry about looking like a fool. You can't worry about getting hurt. You can't worry about whether you're right or not. It just boils down to wanting to be connected at all costs, at all risks. I no longer wanted to allow the permeability of my spirit to seek smaller and smaller shelters. It requires a completely open heart. I felt like I found a way to go home through the glass. -- Dawn Prince-Hughes

I am touched, through the gift of the internet.
