"A bookcase is as good as a view, as much of a panorama as the sight of a city or a river. There are dawns and sunsets in books - storms and zephyrs."  - Anatole Broyard

I used to wish I had a mentor, but then I realized that I have hundreds. I have books, and each one was written by an author; someone who wanted me to know something so badly that he or she wrote it down to help make it withstand the burden of time. I’ve learned things from people I’ve never met and places I’ve never been. I’ve grown with characters that only exist as letters and whispers. I’ve received advice from people who died long ago. And to all my mentors, near or far, living or long gone.. Thanks. For letting me know that even when I’m by myself, I am never alone.

"People talk about books that write themselves, and it’s a lie. Books don’t write themselves. It takes thought and research and backache and notes and more time and more work than you’d believe."  - Neil Gaiman; Smoke and Mirrors
