Unedited thoughts from a progressive mind - food, wine, music, poetry, photography - apathy is boring, life without bubbles, more boring still.

It would appear that being responsible for 45 students having a good time is enough to push me to insomnia, even after 7 hours of walking.

Here’s the link for more information about the PS244 fundraising campaign

Here’s the link to the GIVE IT ALL TO ME Library Collection at OutofPrintClothing.com.

Check it out! The good folks dropped me a line about this project last week, and I’m happy to boost for Library Week.

So hey, #education…

I love these.  Love them.  And for a great cause.

Hey, neat things good cause.

Take my money.

Rather, more minutes purposed only for laying flat in bed, phone nicely out of mind and reach.

Rather, more glasses of water before beginning…anything.

Rather, more confident steps out the door.

Rather, more slowed steps to the subway.

Rather, more books read without a thought of what I may write about them.

Rather, more movies watched before bed instead of for bed. For sleep. To sleep.

Rather, more fruits.

That’s the most we can hope for. Nothing thrown, nothing said that we might remember for years. You watch me while you put a brush through your hair. Each strand that breaks is as long as my arm. You don’t want to let go, but don’t want to get hurt, either. It’s not a great place to be but what can I tell you?
Just another stunning passage from THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE HER by Junot Diaz.

humansofnewyork:

"I’m studying to be a librarian."

"What’s the sexiest part about being a librarian?"

"I’d say the width of our knowledge. The rest of academia seems to have a rather specific focal point, whereas librarians need to know enough to serve as a guide for researchers of every discipline."

  • Romeo: Out.
  • Benvolio: Of love?
  • Romeo: Out of her favor where I am in love.
