“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” Stephen King
Before we had smart phones, we had magic portals that could take us to ancient Egypt or the stars and far future. We could sit in the court of a king or be on the battle field with a private. We could sit at the feet of the wise or feel the passion of the greatest lovers ever to live.
In our minds we can summon devils or angels, heroes and heroines and villains from all of history and those only imagined. We could converse with and get in the heads of leaders and children, see and feel and touch their worlds and words. All within the palm of our hands.
Open these possibilities.
Open a book.
