Since I still have a long ways to go to finish NaNo, I'm going to keep this very short.
When I was in New York last week, I visited the New York Public library--you know, the famous one with the two lions out front.
Anyway, I saw this phrase engraved above one of the doors:
Translation: "A good book is the precious lifeblood of a master spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life."
Rather than give you my interpretation, I'd love to hear what you think this means. Or, more specifically, what does this mean to you? Because I think we all take a different meaning based on our own life's experiences.
So take a break and let your mind go somewhere else besides your NaNo story. Think about why you read. Why you write. And tell me, what does this mean to you?
