I love to learn new things, and I love a good story so I read a lot. I’d thought I’d share my thoughts with the world, and hopefully it will help others find books they enjoy. I also have a lot of hobbies, like crafts and genealogy which I pursue when I have the time.
As for the title of this blog-
Roots refers to the ancestral roots we all have, whether we seek them or not, and the cultural, intellectual and spiritual roots of the stories we currently tell.
Leaves is for the leaves of books, and the leaves, human beings which are being born every day budding and unfolding, adding to the family tree, just as other leaves fall, but their roots and branches remain.
Threads is for the “thread of poetry that connects all things” as a Celtic saying goes, and the threads/yarn/cord and other materials used in crafts. Threads connect us to thousands of years ago when humans first learned to create textiles.
