pages of life

these days i waffle between
wanting to curl up with a good book
and wanting to write a good book.

there is so much this world has to offer
for me, writing it all down is one way i say thank you
and acknowledge the happenings of my existence.

A good book has no ending. ~R.D. Cumming

If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison

Let books be your dining table, and you shall be full of delights. Let them be your mattress, and you shall sleep restful nights. ~Author Unknown

You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. ~Paul Sweeney

A book must be an ice-axe to break the seas frozen inside our soul. ~Franz Kafka

A house without books is like a room without windows. ~Heinrich Mann

Books are delightful society. If you go into a room and find it full of books - even without taking them from the shelves they seem to speak to you, to bid you welcome. ~William Ewart Gladstone

this gorgeous book mobile image comes from the shop house. operated by a truly creative artist based in new england who knows how to hang and curl pages beautifully. i am smitten with these open dangling books spilling with pages (and potential). oh how i wish to have a house full of them.

Love this quote - "The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid". - Jane Austen

I loved the one about losing a friend when you turn the last page. I feel that way SO often with books. what a perfect quote!

you are such a gifted writer.

Marta my friend, I would read whatever you wrote. I say go for it! And PS, I love that you refer to your darling baby as "Benji Bear." Seriously, I think it's so endearing!

Those quotes are perfect and the mobile is beautiful.

"these days i waffle between

A very good book you would write indeed. You have a way with words; I've been hooked since I found this blog late last fall.

Thanks so much for your email. I am glad you enjoy my work!

I have just listed a new Book Mobile on etsy, since the other 2 sold last week.

And please feel free to visit my blog as well at www.locchipinti.com

Continue writing your inspiring words!

some of my best friends are the people I have met in books. When I get lonely for them, I just pick up the book and have a little visit.
