Balancing my Life at Full Circle Bookstore

Booksigning at Fullcircle    I love Full Circle Bookstore!  I had a great book signing there today and Julie and Mary were wonderful to help me get setup and ready to go.  The ladders that roll around from one tall built-in bookshelf to the next remind me of a library in a European castle.  Patrons played chess while others read books curled up by the fireplaces that have been extinguished for the spring.  The store is quaint and eclectic with small rooms dedicated to each type of book and the shelves are labeled with works of local Oklahoma authors.  The entire shop reminds me of happy childhood days spent in the local library.  A place to go and spend time in faraway places away from the hub bub of modern day life.  A place of relaxation.

Outside in the entrance to the mall at 50 Penn Place stands Pearl the matriarch of the store.  She is an albino American Bison covered in pearls. She stands stoic at her place of honor to guard her home and the art within.  She was created by three Oklahoma artists, Mishi Susan, Jenny Woodruff, and Claudia Wylie and symbolizes Full Circle’s collection of books about Oklahoma and by Oklahomans.  Their commitment to Oklahoma art gives them a special place in my heart.  GetAttachment

Spending time at Full Circle made me feel in balance again.
