I can't tell you how much I love the night sky. Last night was the full moon and when I saw it I caught my breath. And I ran outside, armed with Canon and my zoom lens to capture. Orion the great hunter watched me gently as I snapped pictures of the moon.
Whenever I open a book, I get this feeling of sheer joy. I love the smell of them, especially old ones. And if they're library books? I imagine all the other people who have enjoyed this book before me. I love it when the books are old enough to have cards in them, and there's all kinds of different signatures from people. (The LOTR books I have from the library have this certain smell... and it's pretty wonderful.)
I feel pity for the person that doesn't read. I've always believed that reading enriches people. It fills your soul with wonder and happiness. Really, the feeling that I sometimes get while reading is pretty hard to describe with words. It's like an incredibly joyful & peaceful sense.
" A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. A man who never reads lives only one."
- George R. R. Martin
But the best thing about reading can be found in the words of Samwise Gamgee - " Don't the great tales never end?"
And here's some pictures of Efraim. I'm so blessed to have such wonderful (and adorable) brothers.
Today I felt like the luckiest girl in the world. I love my life so very much. I have an amazing family (and, a pretty sweet camera.)
