I don’t have enough money/Proof of Residency to get a California Driver’s license (YET) but I got a San Francisco Pubic Library card. Even that wasn’t easy. I had to mail myself a postcard to prove that I receive mail at my girlfriend’s adddress…I do. I brought the librarian the postmarked postcard and I now own more Public Library cards (4) in my life than I have cell phones (3).
Support Your Local Library. Some of them even carry rare Richard Yates short story collections that the used bookstores don’t often get.
Speaking of support, I can’t get enough of this photograph.
I’ve seen it on a book cover before, but for some reason this wider shot just mesmerizes me. Maybe it memorizes me, actually, and I go on auto-pilot looking at it.
