TO JUDGE OR NOT TO JUDGE.


Thursday, November 5, 2009

On my way to the library I didn’t really know according to what I am going to pick a book. I was confused. But the minute I stood in front of the library I saw in the corner of my eye a small, old and weird looking book that looks a bit hand made with metal binding and a distinct old brownish color. It was just lying there, alongside the brand new and fancy art books.

When I reached for the book I noticed that it’s even in worse shape then what I imagined, I looked at the book cover and I saw it’s a book about design and research. Then I flipped a few pages and discovered that some pages are a bit torn and with many pockets and inner plastic pages with plans of some sort.

I lent the book and started thinking – Why did I pick this book? Was it there for a reason?

I have never seen anything like it before. I am fascinated by my new discovery. Maybe we really should judge a book by its cover?

    Elon! Maybe we really should judge a book by its cover? What an anti-climax.

    Everybody judges a book at first by its cover, but after thinking about it and perhaps reading the book he discovers (or maybe allready knows) there is more. There is always more in a book then just the cover, so a book can not only be judged by its cover.

    Anti-climax? faith? luck? maybe it’s all from above? no answers just questions.
