if all the world were paper …

Today I made shortbread cookies.  Lovely, buttery, crumbling things, brown around the edges, with plenty of pecans.  And, as I stood with my hands in soapy water cleaning butter from the mixing bowl, I reflected with satisfaction that I had produced five pages of cookies.  Not cookie sheets, not dozens, but pages.  Well, if I needed confirmation, it is now confirmed:  words are my medium.  And I laugh.

(Incidentally, a page — er, cookie sheet — contains something nearer two dozen cookies … my above statements did not, perhaps, make that clear.)
