Vanitas desk

World Book Day and other transient things

Today is World Book Day - you hadn't realized? Neither did I, until this afternoon. Still, I'm all in favor of celebrating such things. Books are good. Carpe diem.

After all, time is fleeting. Read a book today, for you might not have time for it tomorrow.

And why, may you ask, does does vanitas weight on my mind today? It's because I'm working through ever so many images of hourglasses, mechanical clocks, and personifications of time.
