this way to the entrance

run 
your 
fingers
along the 
thickly fenced gardens
spot a shining sliver of light
pull a plank out, enter the world
of the seeing mind

time lost
freedom found

  2. The image of books as a garden is magic. A garden to linger in for hours and hours, days and days, forever.

  3. If there was ever a time or place to not ask for assistance, that would be it...getting lost in freedom, one book at a time.

    I like this very much.

  12. Some of the best parts of my life have been spent in that world behind the loose planks in the fence of books which you've built so perfectly. You've captured that sense of a better reality inside the covers.
