"Catch a Book, West Sacramento, California, Joseph Bellacera" -- "This sculpture reflects the idea that books house an abundance of knowledge ready for the viewer to catch. These books are covered with patterns based on aerial views of local agricultural landscape and quotes from well-known authors who share a cultural and ethnic diversity with the people of West Sacramento."

A made-to-order book cover skirt. Adorable!

Actually, it happens even more when I write. I go into a time warp, and the hours slip away. I have to set alarms to awake to reality or kids remain on school steps after the doors are locked.

One must be careful of books and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us. - Cassandra Clare
