Since today is supposed to be a day of finishing unfinished jobs and tying up loose ends, I am devoting it mostly to procrastination. First in the worthy line-up of displacement activities comes Drawing This Love, providing me with an excuse to lie on the floor on my tummy surrounded by crayons (click the link if you fancy doing this too, and want to help contribute to an animated music video in the process).
Thirdly is twenty minutes of bookshelf browsing. One day, perhaps, I’ll have sufficient shelf-space for all the books that need it.
