In the ancient world, machines returned books,

intimidated and embarrassed. I myself spent hours

in the library with students, teachers and technical staff,

keeping track of blueprints for dream restaurants, a wealth

of knowledge, creating our own modern will.


The first time I stepped inside the door

was an experience I shall never forget. Overwhelming.

We can now easily store documents, antique clocks

and light fixtures, though much was lost which could have

improved our humble quest. Fire took hold.


You moved repeatedly and lost it in the shuffle.

Just pay the fine and get over it.
