Conscious Relationships: How to Train Love
Tonight's event was amazing! Patti Smith is a no frills, down to earth, authentically cool person. She read from M Train (which means Mind Train), signed ticket holders copies, answered people's questions, sang 'Because The Night' with her son on acoustic guitar, but most importantly she gave me hope in the creative process again. She said:
"Create because you have to."
"The blurbs I write for others are because I liked the book, not because I know the author."
Had some wins the last few days... 46 books for $54 from the local book fair, 3 happy children and one rather happy mummy. Including, but not limited to those listed. Even found a copy of The Hobbit in far better condition than my own copy for 50c!
After spending many hours following trying to make room in my various bookshelves, I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more books until I'd read everything I already have...
Then found a couple more Pratchett's and The Night Circus today at our newly opened local book shop at $6. Couldn't even last 3 days without buying more books. At least it's a healthier addiction than most.
And for real this time (I hope) no more books until I've read everything in my book case...
