Reading IS delicious! My longtime friend and pen-friend from The Netherlands reminded me of how far back our friendship goes...1996! I'm savoring this read. Love the Dutch folks, especially my dear friend Anita. #readingisdelicious #savortheread #bookmebiteme #learnEnglishwithpenpals

|β€’| Reading beyond words |β€’| What does the β€œtext” on this β€œpage” communicate to you? |β€’| Flowers: Few things in this world are universal [carry the same effect despite different cultural lenses], but flowers seem to be one thing that can, universally, bring joy 🌸 |β€’| And now, a poem by Khalil Gibran for you to enjoy.

Song Of The Flower Xxiii
I am a kind word uttered and repeated
By the voice of Nature;
I am a star fallen from the
Blue tent upon the green carpet.
I am the daughter of the elements
With whom Winter conceived;
To whom Spring gave birth; I was
Reared in the lap of Summer and I
Slept in the bed of Autumn.
At dawn I unite with the breeze
To announce the coming of light;
At eventide I join the birds
In bidding the light farewell.
The plains are decorated with
My beautiful colors, and the air
Is scented with my fragrance.
As I embrace Slumber the eyes of
Night watch over me, and as I
Awaken I stare at the sun, which is
The only eye of the day.
I drink dew for wine, and hearken to
The voices of the birds, and dance
To the rhythmic swaying of the grass.
I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath;
I am the memory of a moment of happiness;
I am the last gift of the living to the dead;
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.
But I look up high to see only the light,
And never look down to see my shadow.
This is wisdom which man must learn.

by Khalil Gibran

Don't you love hearing other people describe the books they're reading? @mary_brisbane says "The Perfume Collector" by Kathleen Tessaro is JUICY. Makes me want to read it! #readingisdelicious #bookmebiteme #savortheread #tesol #esl #thenewfacesofacademia #reafinginspiration

πŸ€” Why might reading be delicious? Because you'll be able to follow recipes! Check out @persianmamablog. Her recipes come with amazing narratives, and you'll get both a good read and a tasty treat. Her blog has been my go-to for home cooking ever since my Maman went to heaven.

Can’t even begin to explain how excited I am about this graphic novel! My latest purchase at the awesome Perez Art Museum gift store and totally worth the sticker price.

My Maman was known for her thoughtful, hand-written cards. She always took the time: "One of the bonuses of loving yourself is that you get to feel good.

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡Ή Guatemalan activist and Nobel Prize Laureate, Rigoberta MenchΓΊ Tum, speaks to Miami. Her advice for the future generations of this world? 1. Participate [as much as you can in whatever you can] 2. Make friends [your road will be easier and more fulfilling] 3. Live in harmony with Mother Nature [she is healing and she has the power to heal you]. This world belongs to us ALL.

Day 23 of my Maman's eternal rest. I find comfort in wearing her clothes (especially her striped pajamas) and reading her books. What's great is that when I read her books, I see her annotations (highlights/marks/notes). And now, I add my own. Books are a legacy. #bookmebiteme #readinginspiration #learnwithus #tesol #savortheread #thenewfacesofacademia

Your books are a part of the mosaic that make you unique. My Maman left behind a vast library, and I'm continuing to know her better by reading her books. I see her handwriting in the margins (sides of pages) and her highlighted quotes. How special 😌. #day21ofMamanseternalfeast #bookmebiteme #savortheread #abookaday #readinginspiration #thenewfacesofacademia
