“mandala of books”

Just as an astronomer learns about the stars by spending time with them. I could surround myself in a nest of books to learn about their “bookness”. How they occupy space, land at the right angles, stack and slide over each other. I might as well try.

I enter a literal mandala of books. Which ever way I turn new topics face me. From reminders of genocide to crowdfunding to the Tao of Pooh to The Prophet by Khalil Gibran. A Kaleidoscope of Books. You can make your own and in doing so see yourself more clearly than in the mirror. A mixture of pain adventure simplicity drama violence insecurities aspiration determination elegance art surprise. This layer of books, merely one layer of the seashell from which I have read.
