Sometimes, I just want to escape to a library.
Growing up I remember spending countless happy hours pottering about the local library - the British council Library in fact. It was never crowded - and the few people around would be going about their business quietly and peacefully.
There is just something supremely soothing and..civilized..about a group of strangers coming together in a place for a common purpose and yet not getting in each others way. Each focused on his or her own interests and literally in their own worlds - and yet pursuing a common interest together.
I wish I could escape to a library.
