Please Take Note...

As you may have noticed, more blog changes have taken place tonight. Aside from some more color-changing and a few picture edits, I've also added a list of books that I have read (and recommend) during April (and stretching until May - two months at a time seemed practical). All the book titles are hyperlinked so that you can learn more if the title intrigues you. Eventually I plan to add another page where I will be reviewing films, books, and pretty much anything else that strikes my fancy, at which point I will change the links to direct visitors to my personal reviews. No promises on when this update will take place, since I am right in the middle of house-hunting, but I do plan to have it done by the end of May, if not sooner.

UPDATE: The new page is up and running. I've decided to call it "According to Stephanie" (hence the change to one of my labels on this blog). Feel free to check it out! It's not terribly impressive at the moment, but I'm sure it will be a site of interest in due time.

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
