A library can be better than a museum. And much larger.

book IS truly art [even on its own]. And you can even
touch it!

It’s amazing to pick up a hundred year old book and flip
through the pages, wondering how many generations before
you have picked up the same book. Look at the notes and
the highlights; imagine the hands that put them there. All
these thoughts are wonderful thoughts that can only be
found in a library.

I did just that today, I opened read (touched and smelled)

excellent play]

The rest of the time I spent in the library was reading the
3rd part of Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury, studying
business [accounting and economics], and flipping through
art magazines. I found some wonderful names I have never
