The library at Mafra National Palace in Portugal. Where, to keep books from being damaged by insects, they uses 500 bats! The bats are kept in boxes during the day but at night they are let out and eat up to double their own body weight in insects. (Info taken from this article at bookwire. Thanks to amygarvey for telling me about it!)
I think I need to go there. Do you think they’d notice if I moved in?

It was considered the most beautiful library in the world!

I LIKE TO CREATE A SPACE FOR DISCOVERY, A FIRST MOMENT WHERE YOU CAPTURE WHAT IS OBVIOUS IN THE PIECE, WHERE YOU CAN CONSUME IT IN THE FIRST INSTANT. BUT AS YOU COME CLOSER, YOU DISCOVER THERE’S MORE TO IT AND YOU START TO DECONSTRUCT IT.

Un grand sommeil noir

feuille-d-automne:


Un grand sommeil noir
Tombe sur ma vie :
Dormez, tout espoir,
Dormez, toute envie !

Je ne vois plus rien,
Je perds la mémoire
Du mal et du bien…
O la triste histoire !

Je suis un berceau
Qu’une main balance
Au creux d’un caveau :
Silence, silence !


Paul Verlaine
