What a wonderful bounty of beauty to wake up to this morning after traveling! Thank you, @TheBookHippie ! Every page is an art piece in this Rumi collection and the Whitman feels like a bible (cover is so soft)! Dark chocolate too and it all fits perfectly in the tote—I‘m ready to take some great books in it on my next adventure! You know me well!

Sorry, @KateReadsYA for the late post! Airport fun had me home past 1am. 😊 #LitsyFoundFamilySwap

Karisa And in true @TheBookHippie fashion, I‘ve now been looking into the connection between Rumi and Whitman. Looking through these books you sent I finally noticed there was one!🤦🏻‍♀️😂 Here‘s a link: https://whitmanarchive.org/item/anc.02135 (edited) 2mo
Karisa Oh my gosh! Seeing what Whitman underlined and his annotated notes on the writings Thoreau 😍 He underlined: “It is the characteristic of great poems that they will yield of their sense in due proportion to the hasty and the deliberate reader.” (edited) 2mo
TheBookHippie ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ I‘m so glad you love it! And are taking on my research 😘 I hope the notes came through with the books on the little Amazon papers!! 2mo
