Images of the week

Jorge Luis Borges said, "I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."

I'm having trouble deciding which library I'd rather be left in -- the cluttered one or the palatial one. Either one, I guess.

Cool pictures. The first one seems airy and light and the second, crowded and cozy.

I have said for many years that if there are ghosts, and they get to choose where they will haunt, my spectre will be found in the stacks of the Union Memorial Library on the University of Wisconsin - Madison campus. That's because I spent a lot of hours in it. If I don't have to have been there, it may be one of the libraries at Oxford University.

I think ghosts get to go wherever they please, Monica, even if their bodily counterparts never got there.

Why else have ghosts?

Oh, cluttered. But if they gave me the palatial one, I could take care of getting it nice and cluttered.

Have you ever been to the Huntington Library in Pasadena? Gorgeous.

I LOVE the Huntington library! I must admit I spent as much time in the shop, however.

And I love your idea of cluttering up the palatial one. I'm with you there.
