Writing. Reading. Books. Printing.
Today I give thanks to all the people, past and present, who share ideas with language. Especially the written language.
A modern day person can find almost everything in writing – facts, figures, historical events, stories, and even lies. Within the covers of books you can learn how to cook, build a birdhouse (or a people house), or weave a piece of cloth.
Paper, or an electronic screen, with the right combination of marks can be a magic carpet and take you on a visit to the next state, the other side of the world, or far into space. You can travel back in time. Or centuries into the future.
