Saturday, December 8

the nostalgic book of days


occasionally a small, worn book will call to me from the shelf and i will know right away what it will be.
that is how 'the story of the other wise' man came to be in my shopping sack and walking out the door.
published in 1895 with red cloth covers and gold printing it is rather magical. the story is charming and the slender size of the book a pleasure.
it has become the nostalgic book of days. i left a small space on each page to write about the day and to record my feelings as december 25th draws nigh. here is the beginning. . .
