I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

“The more that you read,

the more things you will know.

The more that you learn,

the more places you’ll go.”

From “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!” by Dr. Seuss.

I was a late developer when it came to reading.  Now we have a wall of our living room dedicated to a bespoke bookcase which takes up the whole surface.

Friends of ours recently returned from the Q Conference in Austin.  They’ve been there as delegates for the last three years and every time they have come back with ideas, books, essays and DVDs that have really stimulated my thinking.  Whilst they probably don’t have a clue about it, I think they have  brought resources and discussions into my life which have directed, stretched and shaped my thinking and growth these past few years, more than any other friends I know.

This year they both received a bag full of free stuff and they gave one of them to us.  It may sound like a small gesture, but we are so grateful for it.  More brainfood and I’m excited about getting stuck into it and seeing what I learn.

One of the things they have introduced me to in recent years is the ever excellent Paste magazine.  With the downturn in advertising revenue resulting from the present economic downturn, the magazine is sadly struggling financially.  A campaign to save Paste has been launched out of necessity and it includes 75 free downloads which some really cool artists have donated specifically to the cause.  You can get the low down and add your support here.
