I am floating along ever […]

I love Brora Library, not only for its staff and its books (and the fact that it was once a drill hall), but for the pick-me-up-and-read-me magazines and literary newspapers, leaflets, take-home-and be-inspired postcards, and the area at the end where we sometimes hear – or even offer – lectures, talks, and group activities.

Barbara Mader, A Memoir-in-Progress

Monday, 24 June 2019 The rooms are alive, like a body. In 1927, Novelist Willa Cather articulated it and showed the aliveness of the priest’s residence from the 1800s in Santa Fe which held the first bishop, and from which he wrote, for the vast surrounding Southwestern territory. Now the adobe rooms so much like […]
