Young and Time

It's a bit hard to be young now these days, but we can only look at what we have in front of us. We complayn alot and there is nothing you can say that will change my mnd, becouse we do! But even if the society say that we have to think about the future, then look at the small things, look at how amazing your friends is and remember who you are or try to.

Sleeping beauties

Resting, that is what these old books appear to be doing. And they deserve it. The volumes date from the 17th and 18th centuries and have been on these shelves for several hundreds of years. They are part of York Cathedral Library and occupy a packed room (Pic 5) just adjacent to a larger reading room. When I visited the place, last week, I found myself whispering and walking slowly, so as not to wake them. These images transmit, I hope, some of the magic that hangs in the air: the red and green shine of leather bindings mixed with the distinct musky smell of old books.

Pics (my own): York Minster Library, established precisely 600 years ago this year. More about the library here.
