this month i bought a book and movie that i've wanted for a long time. in the film department i got 'the sound of music'. a classic. a must have. watching this is one of my earliest memories. i love it. i love the goat song, and the curtain dresses, and that babe julie andrews.the book i got is 'material world' and is a photographic essay of families and their homes and all their belongings all over the world. i used images from this a lot when i taught at byu, and will love sharing this book with students and friends alike as i feel it is a powerful message about belongings.
ps i may or may not have also bought a first edition hard back copy of 'pilgrim at tinker creek' by annie dillard at a used book shop in lander, wy . . . and maybe a few more hardback editions of some of my favorite reads.
