10/365 Princess Bride – Reading The Princess Bride which I think has instantly become one of my favourite books ever.  By happy co-incidence when I picked it off the shelf to start reading on Sunday the film was also on television that afternoon.  I’ve loved the film since I was a teenager and now finally I love the book too.

9/365 Sleepless Solitaire – Ugh. Trouble getting to sleep then woken by my tummy/guts at 4am. Took some medicine, checked internet on my phone and played solitaire on my Nintendo DS while I waited to fell a bit better so I could lie down again to sleep. Taken on my cell/mobile phone Samsung Tocco Lite S5230 on night setting (autofocus on my digitial compact a bit noisy when hubbie asleep next to me!)

8/365 Little Prince – Read The Little Prince today for the first time. What a weird book!  I felt like a total philistine afterwards :/ Finished it in bed which is when this photo was taken – with my clip on reading light which I love

7/365 Packages Letters Cards – Sorting some post to mail – a letter, some cards and a package.  This is my address book which I have for longer than I can remember.  A really cheap little address book I got one Chrismtas I think – still going strong.  It’s sitting on the card/letter I was writing to a friend where I was telling her about this 365 project.

6/365 PJ Day (Again) – Another PJ day. Struggling this week with my ME/CFS. January always seems to be a bit of a bust – post Christmas and NYE busy excitement I guess.

4/365  Self Reflected – Reflection in mirror with faithful Canon Ixus I Zoom. I’m weary today and I can see that from my eyes (ME/CFS)

3/365  First Jack Reacher Book – I’m reading the first Jack Reacher book “Killing Floor” by Lee Child and I’m really enjoying it.  It’s one of those books I find myself in absent moments thinking when can I read the next bit.

2/365  A TENS Sort of Day – Recovering from festivities and late night on New Year’s Eve 2nd January was a TENS kind of day.  This time shoulder and neck for tension/pain/headaches.

1/365  New Years Day – Today is mainly about telly – as are lots of lazy weekends. Beginning a new photography project to take a picture every day throughout 2011.  I’ll be capturing life in general – looking to try and be creative with my photography where possible – bearing in mind that I am mainly housebound so have limited scope of subject matter and sometimes illness limits my ability to do very much.

    The Little Prince might make more sense if you read it as a kid, as I did. More of a tendency to suspend disbelief about asteroids with an atmosphere that can sustain little boys and roses. 🙂

  2. Princess Bride is a good book, I hope they have the intro about how his father read it to him in there. I thought it was a postcard, and thought it smashing. I try to read the little prince often, because it so encapsulates everything – sometimes I feel like the lamplighter, not wanting to look too hard at ‘why do I do this’, sometimes I meet the beurocrats, I am the fox, I think, too curious and trusting to live in a human world. But then I think I am the rose and linda the little prince. Perhaps because I grew up in a place where metaphor was all there was makes it easy to understand, as for me it is a book in which the truth of things is boiled down to the most simple essense, and even the book itself is easy to read in size. I am often asking Linda for sheep in boxes, don’t you ask for that, the reassurance of a comfort? It seems a book that can move from art life to disability life easily. I hope you end up liking bits of it.
