I finally joined the ranks of dove gray readers; I've started with Book 5: An Interrupted Life: The Diaries and Letters of Etty Hillesum 1941-43.
As a young Jewish lady during WWII in Holland, who wants to be a writer, finds that her life may not last as long as it should. She writes down her thoughts, which are so advanced for a 27 year old. She was well-educated and lively. I would have liked to have been her friend.
Unlike Anne Frank, she was not hidden away, but she was working during these years.
I received my latest copy of WLT - World Literature Today Magazine published by the University of Oklahoma at Norman. I love reading reviews, because I get ideas on future selections for the International Book Group of New Orleans.
This book might not make the cut, but I wish to read it anyway.
I am not a graphic novel fan, but I might become one. I am intrigued by Glacial Period by Nicolas de Cre'cy. It's the story of archaeologists in the future finding the Louvre and
speculating about mankind based on art that they see.
The Louvre is working with other graphic novelists to commission more works.
My last activity will be to work on my knitting projects.
I need to finish two scarves for the foster children.
I also found a general pattern on the Internet for a shrug. I am adapting it for my cotton yarn. I've changed needles 4 times already to find the right gauge. It's exciting, because I have to adapt and do a little design work to get this right.
