libraries??? do they have magazines there??? cuz, like, i am more of a magazine reader.

There are a few things that will always calm me down and make me happy, such as Neil Young's Harvest Moon, anything Buddhist, pumpkin patches, and smoking out of my crack pipe. Okay, the last one was just a joke. Not exactly a funny joke, but rather an edgy joke. You know, drugs. Anyway, another calming/happiness producing thing for me is going to the Orem Library on Sunday when it is closed. I love having a librarian for a mother, especially a librarian that works at such a kick ass rad library. These are the things that I picked up while at the library (after I ran around like crazy for a minute or two... Hey, when no one's in the library, why not take full advantage of it and act like a five-year-old?):
The Harry Smith Project: Anthology of American Folk Music
The Complete Poems by Anne Sexton
Turtle Island poems by Gary Snyder
American Primitive poems by Mary Oliver
The Beauty of Vermont (basically just a book of bea-u-ti-ful pictures of my future home)
Discarded books:
Authority and the Individual by Bertrand Russell
Freedom in Exile: The Autobiography of the Dalai Lama by some dude
Wherever You Go There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life by Jon Kabat-Zinn
In My Own Way: An Autobiography by ALAN WATTS!!!
Those Amazing Leeches by some perv who put together a disgusting book about leeches full of disgusting pictures of leeches

I love the library romping days, Trevor. I am so glad you remember them. I think I should write some children's books about those days...

I love libraries, and romping in them, or being quiet in them, and sometimes whispering in them, and eating fruitsnacks in them.

I also love that your mom is a librarian, and that you love that she is a librarian. that is what I'm in school for right now, and I hope that one long day down the road that my then kids will love that I am a librarian.
