Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] scribblerworks! May you have a wonderful day today and many more to come!

In other news, there's an interesting post here at the Journal of Mythic Arts discussing the trend of using literature to heal illnesses (both psychological and physical). To quote from the post, "In other words, the medical profession has caught up to what most of us readers have known all along: Stories are powerful; and fiction can change us, body and soul."

"The books we read should be chosen with great care, that they may be, as an Egyptian king wrote over his library, 'The medicines of the soul.'"
