Bits of Inspiration

I was editing my MSN profile while sitting at work (procrastinating, much?) and I have found quotes I have long forgotten about;

"If you could envision the type of person God intended you to be, you would rise up and never be the same again"

"I hate turning on lights, she said. In the dark everything is how I imagine it.with the lights on, everything is how it is"

I found this today: lovely

Have I mention that places like this is where I feel at ease the most?






here- Aren't they cute?

It was a full moon yesterday and I was driving on a dimly lit highway and was blessed with such an experience...I experienced a beautiful full moon. Almost second best to that time when I was at the beach and it was full moon...and the sand was cool under my skin on a warm July night. That was beautiful!

[oh and my class was cancelled yesterday, tomorrow is a day off! I have this weird feeling inside me..like tension. Like wanting to jump up and leave this place, then maybe scream]

How was your full moon?

I have to say that your blog is really cheerful, which is a welcomed change to the utterly depressing blog-o-sphere. I liked it.

Oh my. If you're ever in Wales, then go to Hay-On-Wye. It's a town of books. You'd love it there. There's about 30 old bookshops in a tiny town.

I love the old guys playing games! That's hilarious! And it proves that that will totally be me someday; a wrinkled gamer.

The hubs, bambino and I enjoyed a full moon last night too! There is something so magical about it isn't there?

my full moon was sleepless!
After 6 whole nights of sleep - very, very rare for me - I don't know whether to blame it on the moon or the fact that I handed my book to the printing house this morning..... eeek!

Those book-filled spaces seem too crowded to me, like it's hard to breathe :-/ I suppose I'm just like that with small spaces.

Diamond in the Rough seems to be a really good initiative! I sometimes click through others blog rolls / favourites trying to find even more new blogs to read but it's hard - sometimes it's all about fashion (not my biggest interest) even though the name doesn't sound that way etc. I am super super tired, I need my yellow sofa, ciao.

Oh no! It's always good to have an extra I guess, for those times! You're brave to get it redone so soon.

The library photos are beautiful. They make me think of Beauty and the Beast and musty old smells and antiques. I love it.

sarah said...

Full moons, aren't they something? I believe they bring good luck. Mine was like all my other full moons...reminiscent, to say the least.

Elizabeth Marie said...

Bookstores are the best, I love getting lost in them!!

Gracie said...

Bookstores and libraries are one of my haunts. I love them! And I too also feel and at ease in them. I hope things are all good.

Saskia said...

LookingGlassGirl is right - Hay-On-Wye is definitely a trip you must make!!! I love bookshops, books, the smell of books....
