Anatomy of a Book

Took apart one of my old copies of Jane Eyre to satisfy a creative urge.  

Off came a few pages with some of my favorite quotes; 

then off came the front cover and then the back.  

What was left were the bare bones, 
the words without the pretense imparted by the dated cover.  

Skimming every page and paragraph,

I was again reminded of why it is one of my favorite texts of all time.

More to come this autumn--please stay tuned.
