I just finished reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Wow. I am really kind of blown away by it. It’s truly an amazing book. Superbly written. There are some beautiful lines and phrases in this story. It’s a little long but well worth the read. Oh and the Characterization is great, too. It’s narrated by Death, for starters.

It’s the story of Liesel, a little girl who finds herself living on Himmel Street with foster parents during Nazi Germany. On the way to her foster parents she steals her first book, which is her foray into book thievery. She soon finds that words have power and that they can save or take lives.

You really need to read this book. It’s really, really good.




Okay. I’ve decided that I am going to take a picture a day and post it on my blog. Starting yesterday. I want to do this as a way to learn the art and craft of photography by practicing everyday.

Already I can tell it’s not an easy exercise. I was wondering all day “what the heck am I going to take a picture of!” There was almost a picture of one of my puppets in this space. I had to wait a bit for my hubby to pick me up so I utilized the time to take this picture. My rule is that I have to actually take a picture every day and post it. No posting pictures from two or three days ago. It has to be taken that day.

You may yet see that picture of the puppet. Or two.
