The woman in this illustration has a book. And cats (notice the second tail under the chair). She has snack crackers and a cup of tea and, best of all, she has a book to get lost in. Maybe my need to always have a book with me traces back to that day in church when I realized I had no way of getting lost in a story without dreaming one up myself.
Here's the kicker: Use your imagination for another one, since today is TWOsday. Today, Facebook showed me a memory from four years ago — and this was it. I had set up everything above, including the exact title of this post, before it occurred to me that maybe I had also posted it here as well as on Facebook. Yep, I did. And it is EXACTLY the same, from the title to the picture to the words I used here and on Facebook. Take a look. Since nobody commented, maybe none of you saw this on my blog, so I'll repeat what I've already posted.
