bref j'étais à la bibliothèque nationale

À l'instant où j'écris ces lignes, je suis à la bibliothèque nationale du royaume pour ma première visite. On m'a permis de m'absenter au travail cet après-midi afin que je puisse travailler un petit-peu sur ma thèse et me voilà dans cet espace immense faisant semblant de travailler sérieusement :)
J'avais cru que je trouverais la bibliothèque déserte en ce mercredi après-midi, mais j'étais déçue. il n'en est rien de mes idées romanesque d'une bibliothèque vaste et calme avec une table ou un rayon rien qu'à moi. La biblio était pleine à craquer. Toutes les tables, ou plutôt presque toutes les chaises étaient prises. Il m'a fallu me promener un bout de temps dans la salle 1 avant de trouver une place vacante où je pourrais brancher mon PC.
je tire la chaise pour m'assoir, je pose mon PC, mon agenda, l'article que je veux lire et résumer, mon stylo et mon marqueur fluorescent. Je détecte la prise électrique je branche mon câble d'alimentation et me voila installée.

J'essaie alors de me concentrer sur l'article mais au bout de 10min je lâche. Une fille à ma gauche s'est endormi, un binôme à ma droite n'ont pas arrêté de chuchoter, et tout autour de moi des gens qui s'assoient, se mettent debout, s'étirent, feuillettent des livres, prennent des notes, clapotent sur leurs claviers...décidément, c'est pas l'endroit idéal pour moi pour me concentrer.
Après avoir lu 3 pages (sur 22) de mon article, je check ma boite mail, un lien qu'Amal a partagé m'intéresse. le wifi est bien, donc je profite :p
Je lis l'article qu'Amal a envoyé, je me dis que Shukairy a présenté cette idée il y a longtemps et que ça me plaisait énormément.
Après je me dis, puisque je ne peux pas me concentrer pourquoi ne pas écrire un petit post dans mon blog tant que je suis là.
Je lève les yeux, je surprends un étudiant me regarder, je fais comme si de rien était et je retourne à mon clavier.
Je termine le post, je publie et je retourne à mon article.
Bref, j'étais à la bibliothèque nationale du royaume.

I carry your heart...

[...]
Here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

I carry your heart with me by E. E. Cummings
--In her shoes--

Need a hug??!

This morning, I felt the neeeeeeeeed that someone gives me a big warm hug and tell me: you're ok...everything is gonna be ok!!
But since I'm at work, I'll just give myself a big hug and tell myself :you're ok, everything is gonna be ok...so just close your eyes and smile :)

It has been a hectic day...
2 shoes, one bought and one "wanted"
1 ooooold friend met in the most random place
1 cry released, many more cries kept bottled inside
lots of beloved faces, lots of beautiful voices, lots of memories
lots of emotions I need to heal from, otherwise I will not be myself for the next couple of days
I've planned to write about everything today but "les souvenirs foisonnent envahissent ma tête et mon passé revient du fond de sa défaite"3ala ra2'y ssi aznavour :p
maybe tomorrow I'd be more stable emotionnaly so I can write about the details

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

One of my goodreads friends shared with me this uber inspiring video along with this quote:"Books are for nothing but to inspire"
Thank you, you made my day :)

The old me

How I wish I was as innocent and naive as I used to be 3 or 4 years ago.
I enjoyed dreaming of fairy tales,
I enjoyed looking at a leaf dancing in the wind
I enjoyed drawing a tree standing almost leafless in the fall
I enjoyed talking to myself out loud in front of a mirror
I had dreams that I barely remember now
I had feelings that I can hardly recall
Maybe I've made progress with people but I almost lost this connection that I had with myself
I miss the old me..I really do..

Oh, the places you'll go!!

Who said children books were just for children?


Today, I totally enjoyed reading this book, it's very inspiring and has helped me deal with this quatrer life crisis I'm suffering from lately. The book is full of wisdom and positive thaughts that one can easily get. it's beautifully writting in the most touching style and above all it's all in rime.
the morality of the book is : aim for stars, move mountains, keep on moving and never, ever, ever stagnate in a waiting state.
 It's hard to pick a favourite quote, so here is a fragment from this beautiful book:

You'll be on your way up!
You'll be seeing great sights!
You'll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights.

You won't lag behind, because you'll have the speed.
You'll pass the whole gang and you'll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you'll be best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
Except when you don't.
Because, sometimes, you won't.
[...]
You can get so confused
that you'll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
        The Waiting Place...

...for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.

NO!
That's not for you!
Somehow you'll escape
all that waiting and staying.
You'll find the bright places
where Boom Bands are playing.
[...]

How can't you smile reading this magnificence :D

and my favourite part is:

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and % percent guaranteed.)
KID, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

So...
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
you're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So.. .get on your way! 

You can read the book here.
Inshaa Allah, when God will bless me with children, I'll definitely read Dr.Seuss books to them.

PS: I was more than happy to read this book and enjoy the rimes mostly because yesterday I watched Mr. Deeds who wrote touching greeting card captions with silly but sweet rimes :)
