books

let's go on an adventure...

I've been fond of reading ever since I can remember the shapes of letters. You know those little books kids get to learn the alphabet? The ones that show A is for Apple with a big red picture of an apple next to it? I was never happy with it. I wanted more. When the librarian at the school or the naval quarters where we lived told me I couldn't have a big novel because I was too small, I was pissed. I wanted to read what I wanted to, and I wanted to read everything.

Like illumined pearls the lamps shone from the summits of their tall poles upon the living texture below which, changing shape and hue unceasingly, sent up into the warm grey evening air an unchanging unceasing murmur.
