Libraries

08 March 2011















When I do not feel like talking, I let others do it for me-

"Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back. That's part of what it means to be alive. But inside our heads - at least that's where I imagine it - there's a little room where we store those memories. A room like the stacks in this library. And to understand the workings of our own heart we have to keep on making new reference cards. We have to dust things off every once in awhile, let in fresh air, change the water in the flower vases. In other words, you'll live forever in your own private library."

- Haruki Murakami (Kafka on the Shore)

Sometimes I wish I could climb inside your wardrobe and live there, I'm in love with these socks! I'm in the middle of reading Kafka on The Shore, I get sidetracked by essay research but hopefully I'll find some time to get back to it soon. It's such a great book x
