There are two places on this planet where I feel truly at peace.
One of those places is the library.
Books, and the silence/stillness with which to truly appreciate them.
There is a sense of nirvana which can only be achieved when surrounded by thoughts immortalized on millions of pages waiting at your fingertips.
Epiphanies and revelations sleeping in silent rows, waiting to be awakened by your hand and your eyes.
It is a peaceful exhilaration which I feel at even the most run-down backwoods county library branch.
The library at AUC is no backwoods county branch.
Quite a selection, and plenty of space for reading and writing.
I will have complete access to it throughout my time here.
And the campus has a sandwich shop?
This is paradise on earth as far as I’m concerned.
