I photographed these two delightful readers outside the Winkler Public Library last weekend. Someone had decked them out in scarves. It was a beautiful fall day and I felt like sliding in beside them on the bench to enjoy the book I had brought along. Instead I went into the spacious and welcoming library to work on a writing project while I waited for my husband Dave who was in Winkler for a choir rehearsal.
The statue in Winkler reminded me of a little art piece I have sitting on my book shelf. I bought it from Evelin Richter when I was on an art tour in the interlake a few years ago. It is called Nose in a Book.
It also reminded me of this photo of me at age ten enjoying a book on the couch in our family livingroom
and this one of my husband Dave reading in a hammock in Fiji.
Ah the pleasures of a good book, so good it can be enjoyed anywhere!
