I seem to have developed a stack of reading material very quickly over the past week. I try to always have a book on the go and usually know what I am going to pick up right after but several people have lent, traded & recommended books to me just in this last week. I just finished George R. R. Martin's A Dance With Dragons a few weeks ago and now I am on to The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell which I picked up over the holidays.

Add to the list: The Female Eunuch by Germain Greer, a gift from my amazing friends Clarissa and Jordan; Jung and Tarot by Sallie Nichols, a lending trade with my friend Ryan for my copy of Robert M. Place's Alchemy and The Tarot; Jaguar Woman by Lynn V. Andrews, a lend from my classmate Amanda; and He, She and It by Marge Piercy, recommended to me by my fellow bibliophile and partner, Simon. Not to mention some of the amazing titles Simon and I have picked up over the past year from esoteric bookseller Three Hands Press which I've only had time to flip through.

I have a fantasy: two weeks off, in a cabin somewhere near the ocean, piles of books, lots of coffee, good food, wine and beer and my favourite person with me. Pretty sure I can make it come true.
