Possibly the Best Evening of 2008

Before:


(those mounds are, going anticlockwise from the right: poetry, literature in general (mostly novels, but also short story collections), music and art are up against the wall, classics (12 o'clock), non-fiction, Bahai books are on the bed, academic is at 8 o'clock with the very intimidating (and misleadingly named) Statistical Thermodynamics, an Introduction at the top)









One Hour Later:



That's most of it done. But I keep finding odds and ends around the place. The row at the bottom is going to be magazines, notebooks, etc. but I need to buy some boxes for it first.

I am telling you all this, because it was quite possibly the most fun I've had in the last 13 months.

Those of you who have books on my shelf, inscriptions, signatures, with loves... be it Anjie's Baha'i World, Everything is Illuminated, a very special copy of Prayers and Meditations, Neruda's short but incredible einte poemas de amor y una cancion desesperada, the soo thoughtful birthday present (Entropy Pieces)... and of course Luis's "and all else worth living for" I am glad to have you all near me again. in a way. and to hold you in my hands.
