Dewey (eyed) Beauty Gets Lost in the Library…

I have a confession to make that may cause you to question my ethos as a thinker/writer/scholar:

Back to December all the time…

(don’t love this song, but am sad I didn’t mention DECEMber in the video AND I love Taylor’s whole look here…)

Anyways, libraries can be amazing, but even the great American transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson knew that they could be problematic:

“Meek young men grow up in libraries, believing it their duty to accept the views, which Cicero, which Locke, which Bacon, have given, forgetful that Cicero, Locke, and Bacon were only young men in libraries, when they wrote these books.”

          ~The American Scholar (this address is SO powerful.  Read (about) it!

And to further illustrate (figuratively AND literally!) this idea of library limits,

allow me to borrow some palabras from my dear friend:

They read all the books, but they CAN’T FIND THE ANSWERS!”

so BACK TO BIBLIOTECHAS (after that long but still fascinating tangent)!

Let’s ask ourselves what are the extremes/outliers to all the stuff available to us today..

Where is the wisdom in all this knowledge?

READERS!

What things do you like about the library?  What things intimidate you?

I know boys sometimes find it annoying when girls talk about makeup, hair, clothes, etc.

but it’s hard not to when you love beauty and you also love expressing yourself!  Guy friends/boyfriend/future husband/sons, etc., will do my best to strike a happy medium with you, okay? 🙂

As for you boys, let us talk about it sometimes!  And for the love of Pete, PLEASE use a little tact.  I once had a boy tell me that my lips looked like, wait for it,  saturated urine (I kid you not).  Think he’s getting this girl’s sweet kisses anymore?  Nope.  Not even stealin’ ’em.  And also, I never said I was great with makeup.  Just that I LOVE IT!

But I also don’t NEED it!  I can keep my canvas of a face blank sometimes, particularly when I’m feeling lazy.

(and yes, I realize I’m wearing TONS of it in that picture.

Oh the biting irony that comes with being a wanna-be model for

LIP line of propriety, my boyfriend!

And you know I’m a fan of the color yellow, but come on now…

So back to the main point of this post (I like to bookend a lot!).

Men and women can be very different, especially when it comes to their preferred topic of conversation (listen to this song, I LOVE IT!)  Some even suggest that they are from different planets {Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus}).  But despite all this…

We CAN get along, we CAN learn to compromise sometimes, and we can make it work!

To address some concerns…

I’ve had a few people respond to some of my posts in ways that make me think that THEY think I hate myself.  Posts about bad makeup or being single or whatever.  I appreciate your concern, and also know that even with such a flavorful writer’s voice as mine, it can be hard to read emotion via technology.  But please know that I am happy!  This is not me fishing for compliments.  This is not me rejecting compliments either 🙂

If I didn’t have the confidence to poke fun at my insecurities, I wouldn’t do it.  And here’s the thing.  The sweet spot that I’ve gotten to has made it so that my insecurities lessen (and even sometimes disappear!) when I find the humor in them.

So put that in your pipe and smoke it!
