Writing about my current reading list reminded me of one of my most valuable keepsakes: this photograph. It is of me when I was about two years old. What makes it precious is the notation on the back, written by my Grandy in her beautiful printing. It reads: "Books, books, books -- how she likes them." She saw this in me when I was not even able to read, and it was both a blessing and a prediction for my life.
