Many books on my nightstand, coffee table, dining table, kitchen counter, and car cd player. I wonder what my high school guidance counselor would advise. Jettie North was sure I should go to Bryn Mawr and become a medical illustrator. I kept accepting her loan of an Occupational Outlook Handbook for the weekend, while being creeped out by eyeballs, muscles, and guts. No matter how lovely the set of colored pencils, I couldn't get past the eyeballs.
Now colored pencils are not needed for medical illustrations. Three-dimensional printers can create human livers. I learn amazing things from our elderly library patrons!
