The Life of Mahomet

The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

next to my computer i keep three books. it's not because i have to refer to them often, but just because i like them. i wish more of the world treated all objects as if they contained inherent value; it is a little more transparent in the case of a book but all objects are repositories of memory (and thus, cultural value). Sure, this is a craftsman's point of view. Chicken or the egg? Maybe I became a craftsman because this is so.
