Because of Boredom

Grant all the desks in the world
to the man
who writes
but is not a poet.

And in return,
give me a cool glass of water

to put up
with his existence.
(Mina Assadi, p. 43 BELONGING: New Poetry by Iranians around the world, edited and translated by Niloufar Talebi)

I love your quote. I'm going to put that book on my TBR list. You do look tired but that's a great idea to go to a coffee shop. Maybe later I will. Happy readings!

Lovely quote, Bethany! And I like that picture of you :)

Unfortunately I've also had unpleasant experiences with libraries being much too nosy!

The beanery sounds great! I think I'm gonna have to make a coffee run soon--maybe I can get hubby to do it for me?? Probably not! Do you have company with you or did you use your timer on the camera?
