Inverse proportions.

Never fails. Dreams get vivid when the drawing stops. Got to keep those mothers away.

Oh, Mickey.

Sorted, pored-over, pilfered, packed, and finally moved a mini-library these past weeks. Including but not limited to:

--three French primers
--two signed Madeline L'Engles
--a shelf of reference volumes inc. Roget's Thesaurus In Dictionary Form and Crabb's English Synonymes (you tell me the difference), the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, a pocket rhyming dictionary, and a small volume on the Queen's English.
--The Essence of the Talmud and an extensive nonfiction on Islamic women
--forty issues of Ebony
--one pamphlet on the Gay Men's Unitarian Choir
--at least thirty years of National Geographic
--countless books on UFOs
--a Penguin edition of Greek Lit
--...and one lonely copy of The Hobbit

A small peek into the highly engaging, highly literate mind of Alex's great aunt.
