I found this lovely quote and picture on I am An Age Old Tree over the weekend. So appropriate as I decided that I wanted to read more this year and a trip to the book store on New Years Day resulted in a lovely pile of bedside books. It's a bit of everything: classic, new, fiction and non-fiction. I have started reading Gertrude Stein's The Autobiography of Alice B Toklas . . . because the humor inherent in writing someone else's autobiography that includes yourself as a third person appealed. . . because I saw Midnight in Paris over the holidays and fell down a rabbit hole to Paris in the 1920s that I don't want to leave. . . and because I loved reading Paris was a Woman when I was living on the Left Bank.
