I've spent this year discovering Afro-American science fiction writers like Octavia Butler, Tananarive Due and Samuel Delaney.

Wislawa Szymborska. Polish Nobel Poet Laureate.

Commonplace miracle:
that so many commonplace miracles happen.
... An ordinary miracle:
in the dead of night
the barking of invisible dogs.
One miracle out of many:
a small, airy cloud yet
it can block a large and heavy moon.
Several miracles in one:
an alder tree reflected in the water,
and that it's backwards left to right
and that it grows there, crown down
and never reaches the bottom,
even though the water is shallow.
An everyday miracle:
winds weak to moderate turning gusty in storms.
First among equal miracles:
cows are cows.
Second to none:
just this orchard from just that seed.
A miracle without a cape and top hat:
scattering white doves.
A miracle, for what else could you call it:
today the sun rose at three-fourteen
and will set at eight-o-one.
A miracle, less surprising than it should be:
even though the hand has fewer than six fingers,
it still has more than four.
A miracle, just take a look around:
the world is everywhere.
An additional miracle,
as everything is additional:
the unthinkable is thinkable.

What's up with this 50 shades of Grey? That's all I've been hearing about lately. Anybody reading it? Is it any good?

Thanks to Chocovegmama for adding on & bumping this group.  I spend so much time in books & things I forget to post. Currently reading:

= THE EMPEROR OF OCEAN PARK  by Stephen L. Carter ---  Epic legal thriller that deals with the politics of the scholarly African American set.  The lead is a brother who teaches law at an Ivy League school whose father, a controversial judge, dies suspiciously as do others around him.  The graphic details about the Black elite in Washington and beyond is engrossing and it has great pace to it.  John Grisham fans looking for something extra will dig this definitely.

I LOVE BOOKS!!! All shapes, genres, doesn't matter. I can't walk past a book anywhere. Libraries are my sanctuary! I have never found a moment of peace anywhere, like I do in a world of books. Currently I am reading "The 3 Faces of Eve" by Corbett H. Thigpen, M.D. and Hervey M. Cleckley, M.D. Also I am in the process of reading "The Are of Seduction" by Robert Greene:-)
