Shoot and Quote: FRAGILE

A book is a fragile creature, it suffers the wear of time, it fears rodents, the elements and clumsy hands. so the librarian protects the books not only against mankind but also against nature and devotes his life to this war with the forces of oblivion.

Umberto Eco

These are two books that we’re reading at present.  The table is where we keep the library books we’ve checked out and the dictionary and other reference books we use sometimes.

Photography: My oldest companions

This Week’s Photo Challenge from the Daily Post people is interesting:

Companion. Yours may not be covered in fur like mine (AKA Chester J. Lampwick) but you have one — or more.

You might think “companion” refers to a person with whom you share experiences, but the definition is much broader:

  • Aperson who is frequently in the company of, associates with, or accompanies another.
  • A mate or match for something.
  • A handbook or guide.
  • A member of the lowest rank in an order of knighthood.

My companions since I can remember have been, books!  Oh, I’ve had pets and am surrounded by loving friends and family…but I’m also surrounded by my oldest friends!
