January…an open book

Federal Art Project

We are two weeks into the new year. I love starting the year out fresh with a new calendar, new books to read, new courses, new projects, new goals…a clean slate. It feels like anything is possible. I’m going to try and keep this feeling all year long.

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”

~Edith Lovejoy Pierce, (1904-1983), poet and pacifist

    • Believe it or not, the first book I am reading is: “Designing Visual Language” — a textbook for my course in technical writing! It sounds dry, but it’s actually quite fascinating. I am also reading another book for pleasure, and will be doing a review of that soon. And you? What are you reading?
