Om migPhD in library science but lapsed librarian apart from my own collection, estimated at about 10,000 books, or whatever the number ends up being once the books are catalogued. It's a slow process because of course one keeps buying books and prefers to spend time reading them . . .and the response to them is more likely to be more writing, rather than cataloguing. Also am a writer by inclination & practice and a storyteller, and a sometime student of herbal medicine. Formerly an art teacher and gallery curator, now exercised mostly by fantasizing my ideal art collection. The ilustration (right) is from the catalogue of the major exhibition in London U.K. summer 2008 of fin-de-siecle (1849-1916) Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershoi, "whose work languished unremarked for years, but who is now regarded as the greatest Danish painter of the second half of the 19th century." (from Times Online June 21/08). The title of this painting is "Interior, Strandgade 30, 1908" -- his home with his wife, who was also so often his model, and is typical of the sense of stillness and mystery in his painting. I think of the woman as sitting quietly reading, her back turned to the world of domesticity, facing open doors leading to the light, therefore chose it as the most appropriate image for a "profile." Hammershoi's interiors always draw me in the way books do to other worlds.

Om mit bibliotekPoetry the priority -- but also heaps of fiction (including East European & Russian), cookery books, natural history, ecology, art, herbal medicine, philosophy. Some parts of the collection have been designated by personally relevant tags: "Nyborg Collection" for the storytelling and folk-tale books that are a resource for the storytelling part of my life; and "Rara avis" for those poetry books being kept in a separately organized collection because of their rarity, fragility, size or status as chapbooks or broadsheets. Am considering including,literary journal holdings eventually and have finally begun to add CDs: each time I listen to one, I enter it to LT collection: doesn't seem as daunting that way. Fringe benefit: spending more time listening to music, getting to know how much I've accumulated and also avoiding duplicate purchases.
