I always have a book with me. Physically and always, I have a book with me.
I just learned there is a name for this: vade mecum. vay-dee-MEE-kum noun.
1. a book for ready reference: manual.
2. something regularly carried about by a person.
"Vade mecum" is Latin for "go with me."
Could there be a better phrase for the book at my side? I think not.
I think I have a new favorite phrase in Latin.
Which means this is the first time I've had a favorite phrase in Latin.
This is a big day.
