Yes, I am writing a book. One that will never be published.
You know, some people see all the lovely books on my shelves at home and remark, "Wouldn't you rather have a Nook or a Kindle?" Why, no. They see me knitting sweaters, socks, hats, scarves, and ask, "Isn't that difficult? Doesn't it take you a very long time?" Why yes, it does. People puzzle over my love of scrapbooking. "Wouldn't it be easier and faster to just do Shutterfly albums?" Why yes, it would.
These three activities have a lot in common. They are TANGIBLE. They take TIME. And in the case of knitting and scrapbooking, the end result is artful and one-of-a-kind. But they aren't so much about "product" as "process."

Similarly, with the holidays nigh, it gets a little more challenging for me to get over here and say SOMETHING on Blogger. Oh, but I'm still reading. That never goes away!
