This week I made a stop at the Livermore outlets so that my Japanese students could buy gifts for their wives. While there I discovered a beautiful sculpture.
The sculpture is about the love of reading and where reading can take you. I of course identify with the little boy in the sculpture, but also with the little girl who is Taking Flight with her imagination while reading.
I need to go back when I have more time and take more pictures of the sculpture. I especially want to find out the titles of the books. One of them is Call of the Wild to honor Jack London who at one time was a resident of Livermore.
I need to search out more reading sculptures. I know there are more in the area, I just need to hunt them down. I have already written a post about the sculptures at the Pleasanton Library. See: Reading Sculptures
Now to do some reading before bed 🙂
