As I called up the title to review this, it occured to me: a thousand mirrors? I'm going to have to think about that. Why a thousand? And who or what is doing the reflecting? There aren't that many people in the family, but way more people on the isl...more

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only once.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

“Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are.

Marc Hack

“I am not crazy my reality is just diffrent than yours”
Cheshire Cat

“We are not an endangered species ourselves yet, but this is not for lack of trying.”
