I am sitting here surrounded by books.

I LOVE books.  Nearly every book I've ever picked up has given me something of value, even the ones I hated on sight and didn't finish.  Books are words and pictures and interpretations of someone else's understanding of the universe.  Another point of view which, whether I agree with it or not, leads me to a greater understanding of my own. 

Often it's the soul with which I vehemently disagree that enlightens me the most.  To agree is to ratify my own thinking - to object is to stretch my awareness.
