Words Aflame

I absolutely love books but after a thorough re-visitation of Steinbeck's arrogance and misanthropy, I felt quite incensed this evening with a renewed abhorrence for the man and his pessimistic determinism. Thankfully, there is nothing like a little bookish bonfire to cleanse one's library and one's mind.

I could find no beauty in his words but among the flames the pages came alive, blooming into a delicate mass of vaporous cinereal carnations.

I dont like the idea of burning books...even if you dont like their words. Other may.
However, I do love the photos.

as shocked as i am to see someone burning a good book, as much i am in awe of the photographic quality you gain from your dislike of steinbeck's oeuvre...
