~Object 2~ A Dictionary

A Dictionary with frayed edges sits on a shelf.  Its dark green color is faded in some areas, stained in others.  The binding is near its end and the back cover recently freed itself altogether.  Gold letters along the edge of this book's pages guide its reader to the spot of their choosing.  The faint words, "Webster's Approved Dictionary," are to be found on its outside, but inside is where the treasure is to be unearthed.

Pages and pages filled with words.  No plot or conversation to follow, simply one word after another after another.  Ink stains and crayon marks are to be discovered from time to time, blocking a word here or there.  Favorite words are underlined, and corners of pages are folded to mark some handler's spot.  Occasionally a loose leaf is to be found, but none of this detracts from the beauty and wisdom to be found in this humble volume.

Over and Out,
