On Patterns and Books

It’s amazing to me how I can look at something one day and be totally uninspired. Case in point: I checked this book out of the library and marked bunches of pages with sticky notes because something on the page called to me.

Must’ve been my mood at the time. Maybe I just wasn’t being receptive to the inspiration gods, whatever.
