Once, one of my teachers in university said that whenever she got into a house without books she felt there was something missing. That house lacked something.
The other day I was getting ready to leave and while searching my earrings I hit accidentally one of the few columns of books spread all over my place. And I thought “I have too many books” (how could I think that? In any case, it should be I don’t have room enough!) And that sentence pronounced years ago came back to my head. And then I thought (this is how my mind works, jumping from one idea to another) that in my perfect house I must have huge windows and lots and lots of books. That’s heaven for a book lover and a photographer. Because, if you think about it, books are windows!
Both touch, illuminate, caress, comfort, show new worlds, let some space to the imagination, show, reflect, decorate, let some light in, help to see things differently and, sometimes, let you find yourself in them.
