malleable memoir

9 x 12, oil on canvas
"Live for awhile in the books you love.
Learn from them what is worth learning, but above all love them.
This love will be returned to you a thousand times over.
Whatever your life may become, these books - of this I am certain -
will weave through the web of your unfolding.
They will be among the strongest of all threads
of your experiences, disappointments, and joys"
Rilke Viareggio

What an interesting perspective! Makes me want to grab "The Help", pour a cup of mango green tea, (glasses already on my face :), and snuggle in a comfy chair for the day - uh, but better not - beautiful, Faye.
