After lunch, Lauren and I stopped at the Red Balloon Bookshop. We read Perfect Square, Michael Hall's new picture book, and were fascinated by his artwork and idea to transform uniquely painted squares into flowers, a river, a mountain, a fountain, a bridge, and more. I imagine sitting with these same talented friends and creating things from squares we design and separate. I envision doing the same with children.
I am near the end of Lisa Genova's incredible novel Left Neglected, and for the past two days, I have contemplated life without my brain's acknowledgement of my left side.
