It’s Saturday and I’m beat after a rather intense work week which includes 1.5 days of jury duty (save that for another post). I’m sitting at my computer, feeling overwhelmed (per usual) with all the little items on my virtual to-do list. Where to start?
What about that pile of New Yorker articles and NY Times Book Reviews that I want to chat about on my blog?
What about cleaning the cats’ litter boxes?
I’m glad I managed to organize myself enough this morning to drop off return packages for online purchases (remind me to never again try to buy bras or pants online!).
And what about reading my f***ing novel that I slaved over in November?
So I did what I always do when I feel overwhelmed. I went to Facebook. Well, I don’t always go to Facebook, but this time I did and found a pleasant surprise. One of my (many) cousins posted a video to my timeline.
I almost wept while viewing this video. The artistry of Randi Parkhurst‘s creation took my breath away. I love paper. I love books. I love nested objects, like boxes within boxes within boxes. What she has created are books within books within books. I can’t even imagine all the hours, days, weeks that it must taken for her to create this. Such fine detail. And I felt like a little kid as Parkhurst opens each book.
Now, you enjoy the video and I’ll go back to my list.
