As noted in my previous post, with my Senior Project deadline coming up, I've been spending a lot of time in the library. One of the stalls in the Women's bathroom has some great quote and doodles so I decided to share some of them. Before I graduate I hope to add some of my two sense to these walls.
"Time is fleeting. Your life is now. Go!!"
"I still love you everyday, my dear."
"The closest distance between two people is a good laugh."
"There's just something about purchase in the winter and lost loves
that go hand in hand."
"The human body is a beautiful thing, embrace yours."
There's always your reference to weed...
"Being somebody doesn't make you anybody, anyway."
"This bathroom stall has better content than the Indy"
(the Indy is the school newspaper)
"My favorite aspect of being a student worker for Purchase College's Library
is being about to hide in this stall and read all the new additions!"
Sometimes the beauty is easy. Sometimes you don't have to try at all
Sometimes you can hear the wind blow in a handshake.
Sometimes there's poetry written right on the bathroom walls."
In my last post, I complained about the condition of the library, but this is one of the things I've enjoyed. Hopefully when they decide to do some renovation these stalls are saved. If not, I'm glad I have documentation!
The wild heart that wants to be free, and the tame heart
that wants to come home. I want to be held.
I don't want you to come too close. I want you to scoop
me up and bring me home at nights. I don't want to tell you where I am.
I want to keep a place among the rocks where no one can find me.
I want to be with you."
- Jeanette Winterson
I found this quote weeks ago, but couldn't really relate to it. I knew it was something I would never want to forget and so I printed it out and stuck it to my bulletin board. Now, being in a state of confusion about love, I was desperate to find a way to put my feelings into words; and then I looked up. There in the corner of my bulletin board was my comfort. Nothing better describes my emotions at this moment in time then this paragraph of words.
