#WHPbookworm Favorites

#Repost @instagram ・・・ Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPbookworm We know. We can’t believe it’s back-to-school season either. Before students in many parts of the world hit the books, the goal this weekend is to make photos and videos celebrating bound books — like this one by @neelandcliff. Here’s how to get started: Show us your favorite spots to read, like your favorite chair in a local library, the place where your book club meets or the one tree you love opening a new book underneath. Look for readers in the wild — whether on the subway, in a park or anywhere else people dive into their books. Let your favorite books take on a life of their own as the players in an Instagram story. Be sure to share directly to your feed to add a more personal touch to your submission. PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPbookworm hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

My escapist soul has always loved books. Written or spoken, few things have the intangible power to touch me the way words do. Camping at @glacierundercanvas a few nights ago @travisburkephotography gave me a book he had in the van where the author interviewed thousands of older people for advice on living well. The particular passage I'm reading here in the photo was from a 90 year old woman named Jane. Her words rang so true to me that I shared them out loud to him. Maybe I am the only one who sometimes needs someone else to put so eloquently things I feel in my head and my heart. Maybe not 🙂 I hope it will resonate with some of you and in turn you too can share with people you care about. Photo by @travisburkephotography It went like this: "I have had to live simply but eventually I realized that it is the best way for me to live. To know what is enough, not to use more than my share of the earth's resources, to recognize the difference between wants and needs, to enjoy the pleasure of making something broken useful again…Happiness does not depend on how much we have but is based on personal success of skills and artistry, a sense of humor, the acquisition of knowledge, the refinement of character, the expression of gratitude, the satisfaction of helping others, the pleasure of friends, the comfort of family and the joy of love." -Karl Pillemar #WHPbookworm
