Thursday Thoughts...

"Words are Life" 

 Marcus Zusak, The Book Thief

Oh my, this book remains one of my favourites. So beautifully written, such details about the power and beauty of books and writing and recording and memory...

I know that as humans we need food and shelter and air and so many things to keep a life going; but I can hardly imagine my life without words; without books.

Books and words carry and contain such meaning: they guide; steer; educate; celebrate; empathise...so many elements of life are contained within them and by them and made available for us to share and explore.

What more can I say? Words definitely help make a life.


A quote from a woman who was helped by McAuley Community Services in Melbourne - words I traced and hand-stitched. Words.
