The magic of books

The magic of books - an art work by T Newfields created on May 28, 2003 in Nagoya, Japan
Books can become windows that help us view future possibilities
or coffins of cellulose to encase discarded dreams.

Books can become bulldozers to transform our mental landscapes
or cement reinforcements that solidify our ideological space.

Books can serve as battle armor to defend ideologies
or caustic bromides to attack any set of beliefs.

Books can become magnifying glasses that highlight details unseen
or veils covering up facts with paper reams.

Books can strings connecting disparate ideas
or ink brushes rendering unpleasant facts less clear.

Books have limitless possibilities –
open more of them, explore and see.
