BTW, my english listening skill is pretty bad, but I just listened to Clinton's speech. it sounds like he was telling about his parents, right? his dad sent flowers to his mom before they got married, right?

I have just finished All the rivers run by Nancy Cato. These are some wonderful passages in the story. I am trying to find the original but haven't found yet.

An individual human existance should be-take a river-small at first, narrowlly fast boulders and over waterfalls. Gradually, the river grows wider, the bank recedes, the waters flow more quietly, and the end, without any visable break, they become merged in the sea and painlessly lose, its individual being.

--

All the rivers are flowing into sea but sea is never full. The rivers always fall on the origin where they started. Human life is like these rivers, life comes and goes together with time. It always goes by but never stops renovating, always changes but stays the same all the time. There is no death as at the end is the start of a new bud...
Nothing lasts forever...

Dix, are you sure you want me to do that?
If I got rid of my internet connection, you wouldn't have the "pleasure" to read my posts again. Now we wouldn't like that to happen, would we? :wink:

Reading "Little House on the Prairie" by Laura Ingalls Wilder, Garth Williams. I've seen the show, but I still wanted to read the book. It's been captivated so far.

No, I don't even have money to get a library card. :cry:
I have some old books on my shelf and I think I've read them hundred of times.
Guys, if you have an old book around, would you mind lending it to me?
I would really appreciate that! :cry:

Yes, my dear Dixie.
For instance, we have the National Library here which is quite big. You need to get a card to enter and everything. Also, you are not allowed to borrow a book. Yeah, it sucks, doesn't it?

There are also small libraries around Lima and I suppose they are free.
There is a library in my school and I need a card as well if I want to borrow a book. This card can be yours for 20 soles. I know it's not much but it's money, y'know?
Anyway, I usually go there in order to read something. Too bad I cannot borrow any books from there. Even though I'm a student.
Come to think of it, I used to borrow books from that library. Yeah, students were allowed to borrow books from a particular section. I don't know what happened since then. It seems that policies changed or something.

Dix, have mercy on this poor girl and and lend her an old book of yours, ok? :cry:

How come you can't borrow a book from a library? What kind of a library is that? I had never heard something like that before. So weird :? Why is that? Maybe they had bad experiences before, such as stealing or books disappearing and that's why they do not allow books to be borrowed? Anyway it's still weird... :roll:
