All the bright orange pumpkins around town are wonderful to see. I love the light and colours this time of year. It's stunning.
The other day I received a book titled Bound To Last: 30 Writers On Their Most Cherished Book edited by Sean Manning. Quickly I turned to an essay written by Julia Glass, an author I admire. Reading her words about a book she was fond of since childhood (Roar and More by Karla Kuskin) triggered me to ponder over what books I hold dearest to my heart.
One of the books I love is Walden by Henry David Thoreau. It has traveled with me over the years to different countries and then back home. Thoreau's writing is always full of beauty and thoughtfulness. Sometimes I like to open a page at random and be enchanted with words of nature, life, and simplicity. One of my favourite quotes from Walden is: "It is life near the bone where it is the sweetest."
I'd like to pose the very same question to you: What book(s) do you still cherish most?
