Winding Down The Year
THINGS HAVE SLOWED DOWN HERE in the past few days and I expect that they probably will stay that way; at least until after the new year. So until then, I’ll probably post when I can but I’m not going to put any pressure on myself to post. It’ll be comfort level posting for a couple weeks! 😀
On a side note, I was out doing some final Christmas shopping today and as I often do when I see one, I went into an antique store. I have an affinity toward antiques, especially books and today I definitely hit a home run. I found four keepers today:
- A 1970 printing of Tolstoy‘s “War and Peace”
- A 1955 printing of “Andersonville” by MacKinlay Kantor. This book is a Pulitzer Prize winning fictional story based in part on accounts of how Andersonville, a Civil War prisoner of war camp was actually built, administrated and lived. (Andersonville is located in the south western portion of Georgia and is home to the National Prisoner of War Museum)
- A 1924 printing of “A Passage To India” by E.M. Forster
- A 1930 printing of “All Quiet On The Western Front” by Erich Maria Remarque
Today’s photograph is of my copy of “All Quiet On The Western Front”. The shadow (as much as I would like to claim responsibility) is accidental but added so much to the feel of the shot, it became an instant keeper.
I may or may not be posting in the next couple of weeks but I wanted to let all my readers know that I wish you all un Feliz Navidad y Prospero Año Nuevo.
