    #44 Thanks for giving me a glimpse of your teacher's world, @Ella de Jong. I am struck by the 'changing' frequency. I am certain that our impatience in the digital world is adding to our lack of focus in the physical world. And maybe young brains will adapt in ways I don't let comprehend, but it seems to me that we will hit a biological hard stop to this lack of attention in just a handful of years.

    I am really glad, though, that there is still a chance for the joy of turning pages to resonate, although I am resigned to their being a historical legacy at some point.... books are inefficient when it comes to weight and space and are very susceptible to water and insect damage, among other things.

    So, I'd love to be introduced to a contemporary Dutch writer of fiction, if you can point me in that direction.

    @Deb 🐝 Helfrich#43 I can only tell you what I see happening while I'm the temporary teacher in class. I've been in 7 schools since February 1rst and what I saw was this: large differences in classes regarding children reading books, physical books. In classes where there are a lot of books, on places where the children have easy access, where there is serious 'taking care of / respect for' the books, in those classes I've seen a lot of children reading and enjoying it.
    In other classes there was time for reading but a lot of children didn't liked it and kept on 'changing' their book. "I don't like this one, I want to find an other one" and then hanging around the books hoping to have a chat with someone ..

    I've seen quiet a bit of schoolwork on tablets, but no reading books on their tablet, so I cannot say anything about that. My guess is they really like to turn the pages, see an actual book, feeling it, touching it. Being busy a lot of hours per day looking at a screen, only touching their tablet or the school laptop with their fingertips ... it's a very positive sensation to read and hold a physical book is my guess!
    At home I've spoiled my kids: they want to HAVE the books... None of us read e-books (certainly not the one Ive written :-) )

    #34 @Ella de Jong, I would love to hear your teacher's take on whether electronic books are lacking something when it comes to engaging youth, is there a richness in getting to turn a page. Or do they find screens and pixels as or maybe more captivating?

    I do certainly 'envy' the access that the digital formats provide. I only had access to the books physically present in my small town, I think I would be changed in some unknowable way if I'd had a broader access to online search functionality rather than definitively limited to the stroll through the stacks.

    Thank you @Deb 🐝 Helfrich for reminding me of the importance of books and how I ALWAYS take picture books with me when I'm going to school and teach (for one day as a temporary teacher, like my current situation). I'm used to it, I'm not sure how many other teachers do the same :-)
    Even for the 12 year olds there are interesting, fun and beautiful warm picture books about emotions!
    I adore the book: "Rose and the midnight cat. by John Brown; Illustrations Ron Brooks" for it's story about jealousy and the beautiful fine art illustrations!

    @Deb 🐝 Helfrich aren't book's man's best friend. I remember my first book. The one that made me fall in love with reading. Pride and Prejudice By Jane. I loved the book so much and reading became a thing after that. I have alot of books that are up the loft cause nobody reads at home apart from me.And I'm not home. πŸ™„

    This emotions has a purpose video was such a great experience to watch you transform the book to reality. I love the idea of a emotions journal. I've gone back to the habit of writing a daily journal and it's going good so far. Thank you Deb. I look forward to our conversations.

    #13 There may be a touch o' the Irish, @Ken Boddie, but mostly I descend from the land of the printing press - at least that is my excuse for being a kindle refusnik. I read ebooks on my monitor and type up notes and quotes, but 'reading' is something I cannot divorce from sitting in a comfortable position, most likely with a blanket around my feet, beverage at hand, book propped just so for easy page turning.

    Now about my flock..... I typically just do what I do, but when someone stops to ask for directions, they tend to realize I think pretty exhaustively about any position I care enough to espouse. I save the heel nipping for when someone tries to get the sheep all confused over specious claims, then I can run around and bring some clarity to the fields.

    And Producer could indeed be christened with the nom de plume 'virtual emotions journal' just between us and our hundreds of worldwide followers and hive-mates.

    I didn't like Tom Wolfe's "Bonfire". I just find not many people can write about Wall St unless they have been through it (like Michael Lewis has). But for books in that sphere I highly recommend Liar's Poker, The Predators Ball, Den of Thieves, Flash Boys, Vendetta: American Express and the Smearing of Edmond Safra. For fiction, I am addicted to Anne Rice.

    Great topic, Gert, and nicely written post! Love to read books but also read about books. I have many books but unfortunately not enough space for shelves. We live in a small apartment and many of my books are stored in the boxes. Therefore I decided several years ago to buy only the necessary technical literature. Other books that interest me I borrow from the library, usually 1-3 books per month. Bought or borrowed, books can open our minds and hearts.

    I fully subscribe to the idea that in order to better know a person, check out their library. All of the truly interesting people I have met in life were readers, who would bring in such wonderful perspectives gleaned from their reading. I can't say I've had the same stimulating conversations with those who only use media (esp. television) to form their worldview.

    "Books transform, mind and heart. Not each and every read. Reading sometimes changes our views, sometimes changes us. Many times we lose ourselves in what we read, only to find a different self. Books fill crevices in the heart and answers questions of the mind. We begin a read and take bits of it in and little by little build ourselves into someone else. A better self sometimes. A more informed self often." - My dear friend @Gert 🐝 Scholtz this little excerpt is poetry.

Like you I have a large collection of books on a variety of subjects but, unlike you, my 'culling' capabilities are poor, except for the odd "How to ...." hurriedly snatched from a charity book sale which I eventually twigged that I would never read. By the way, I would be wary of sniffing books for too long, as the spine glue may 'beam you up', unbeknownst, to a whole new psychedelic world of literature. 😍

    #39 That is a great way of approaching cultivation of reading. To sit with an author over a longer frame and allow their world to work on me is definitely a different kind of speed. A neither spend hours with a book nor do I spend hours in a gym. It is inspiring to hear the perspective of life-long readers and I look forward to an appreciation of cultivating a different relationship with time and the gifts that arise through engendering a love for reading books.

    "Even a dud teaches us something (like, how not to write)." haha... very true. But they are also oddly encouraging. It's the really good books, that sometimes leads me to think, "Oh, I could never write like that; I better hang it up."

    @Robert Cormack I always look for the gems that are your posts. This to me one of your best. You describe the plight of a writer so well: "Behind every book is a story. Each author is a product of survival. We write, we re-write, we deal with rejection, bad reviews, no reviews, nefarious publishers, even more nefarious self-publishers. All just to see our books on a shelf, to have someone say they actually β€œliked” it. Thank you Robert

    #30 Stay tuned Deb. Although I wouldn't call it a happy ending, life is set right, as best it can in the circumstances under which my characters have been placed. Life is full of lessons, we are all tested and we all fail, but sometimes we don't, sometimes we find the path we can take and find peace, with ourselves, with others. "Give me the strength to accept the things I cannot change, change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference". My brother kept this posted on his refrigerator for decades, it was given to him at an AA meeting. The Serenity Prayer. When he passed it was the one thing I insisted be on his marker: Granted Serenity, along with a picture of his cat of course..

    Dear @Pamela 🐝 Williams this was very emotional and a nail-biter to read. I started reading with a smile and all the characters fell into place and I was still wondering why Running deer hated Nicanol after reading the birth part of the episode. Towards the end I was thinking OMG what is this stubborn child going to do and as I wanted my guesses to be wrong . They were not only right but also claimed two lives instead of what I thought as one.
    The loss of a loved one can create such negative feelings and behavior especially when the death is not natural and man-made. I now see why she is treated this way and wonder if Running deer will ever understand that Nicanol has realized the consequences of her action.
    Brilliant fantabulous story writing. This one will definitely never cease from my memory.

    #25 That's what we get in real life. The current imperfect amalgamation of many, many past actions and thoughts. Almost all of which will stay hidden...

    But, of course, the question is - even when meanness is justified in some sense by a prior interaction - is it acceptable?

    I have held grudges for things unable to be uttered in the same sentence as losing a child. And it is inevitable that there will be individuals who we struggle to get along with - but the poisoning of the clan/community that is an entirely different level of grudge and perhaps one to really be alert for. One person rarely has much of a chance against systemic injustice.

    #18 Ah, so you kept them in reverse timeline! Do you see now why that makes sense? To me it had to be written that way, you had to think about the characters and their actions until this episode and everything fell into place. To me it imbued the story with raw emotion.

    #5 I actually tire myself out once I start writing, I can't stop. I sat in a coffee shop Saturday, working on the story and before I knew it four hours had passed. They kicked me out because they wanted to close so I went to one of my favorite diners, had a Western Omelet and worked for another hour. I think I got a bit obsessed. You think?

    #7 Thank you Chas, that means a lot to me. I reread it, which is a mistake I always find things I want to fix and change but this came to me as is so I'm going to restrain myself and let it be.

    #8 thank you my friend! It was really hard to write. I got attached to my characters. I want to eventually do a Prequel and tell the full story of Friend of the Wolf and Morning Dove. Something is telling me that needs to come first. When I finish the final chapter you'll see that. Yes, it's already in my head. Wish I could write it as fast as the story comes to me. I could write a novel in a weekend. :-)

    #10 I warned you Donna-Louisa, things weren't as the seemed. Tell me, do you perhaps feel a little compassion for Running Deer now? Grief and Loss can change a person and she lost a lot.

    #15 It is a definite absolutely love filled set of wows. I am glad I waited in order to read them together. I actually thought I would finish them last night, but I decided to let the first five sink in. I hoped you would be able to see the pattern in my relevanting. I didn't even want to scroll and see any comments my first time through. Excited for the finale!!!

    #9 #14 that's very flattering Pascal and Franci. I don't know if I have the fortitude to write a novel, thought I'll admit its been a dream. I've really enjoyed writing this story and it's definitely uplifting to read such kind comments.
