more books by my bedside
i'm usually a one book at a time kind of gal.  but school has corrupted that pattern. 
  • gift from the sea, anne morrow lindberg.  written the 50s, a white middle-class housewife who takes a two week break for herself to write and reflect. surprisingly insightful and relevant.  beautifully-crafted writing.   "...woman must come of age by herself--she must find her true center alone."
  • omnivore's delight, michael pollin.  a follow up to the barbara kingsolver book.
  • golden gate gardening.  a classic.  i went to go pick the squash flowers from the garden, inspired by a recipe to fry them, but they were covered in black bugs :(. 
  • writing down the bones, natalie goldberg.  a classic how-to writing book.
  • the prophet--kahlil gibran.  i tried reading this while in high school.  perhaps i will get more out of it now that i've lived longer.
  • playful perception, herbert leff.  a book i picked up in college, but never read.  has really neat exercises for changing your perception of the world.  i just "discovered" 10 new details in my bathroom. spend a couple minutes...  amazing how much you don't see what's in plain sight!
how i love lists!
