1955


['The Book Review' gouache paints on water-colour paper 5"x7"]

We meet to discuss the Alchemist. i had not yet read it, so i collect a copy to read after. What i did though, was familiarize myself with the novel, through internet searches. Not having been to book club meeting for quite a few months, i am glad of my decision to attend when i get there, armed, with my dish of just cooked cornmeal coo coo with ochroes. So, when codes of: fantasy, Personal Legends, Urmin and Thummim, Soul of the World, Language of the World, Elixir of Life, omens, maktub; are tossed into the web of discussion, no way am i lost.

everyone talking
at the same time; the pop
of fake champagne

I really like your art, you know that already. I was chuckling when you wrote that you read up on the book from the internet before you went to book club. I love that! :) Hey what ever works. Glad you had a good time.

What a great idea to review the book before you go... now don't make that a habit haha. I like your art expressing your week. Very clever. So much of the time I try to find something to paint but forget what is right in front of me.

Good for you for preparing before going to the discussion! Nothing worse than showing up at a group to find most haven't read the book and the discussion goes nowhere.
