Books...

I'm reading three books . The first one "The Good Book" is indeed a good book. The title is deceiving and as a painter it is the sort of book that inspires thoughts. I pick it ip and read a few pages at a time in any section of the book and it makes me think deeper about life. It's written by writers from Herodotus to Confucius, Baudelaire ,Catullus , and covers all sorts if topics. It is  a very Good Book written in a format that invites one to skip around.                                   The second book, " The Wild Braid" is so well written and thoughtful. American Poet Stanley Kunitz writes about gardening but puts such a magnificent view on the gardens he has nurtured. I would suggest everyone read this even if you don't garden as it tells a wonderful story of a poets thought process.
