October 28, 2010 – Age

October 28, 2010

For some reason, I like old books.  I like the look, the feel, the smell.  Like this book of Psalms and Hymns which is signed “William Nickerson, 1867”.  Perhaps it is because the tattered covers, the dog-eared pages, the failing binding all tells a story. There is only one way to obtain that which is weathered and aged as such….time.  I guess, too, that is why I find weather beaten wood, or rusted farm equipment so intriguing.  I want to ask each one “what was life like when you were a child?”.  Not everything that is good is new.
