In the city of Puebla, México, there is an old and very important library: La Biblioteca Palafoxiana (something like ‘Palafoxian’ Library would be the literal translation, noting that in Spanish biblioteca is where the books are for public read but not for sale as in a librería).

It would be completely useless trying to describe the bunch of feelings you get while entering the Biblioteca Palafoxiana room. The air is filled with the smell of cedar and old books, huge lines of thousands books’ spines on each side of the room, a XVIII century altarpiece at the end of the room, under the arched ceilings, furniture from different eras still —in use—… all that history and knowledge stored on those three stories with about forty thousand volumes.

Is considered the first public library in the continent.

Love is a slow show. Hate, hate it’s just a thunder.

A forest.

"He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong."

W.H. Auden (via observando)

"'I will be very careful the next time I fall in love', she told herself. Also, she had made a promise to herself that she intended on keeping. She was never going to go out with another writer: no matter how charming, sensitive, inventive or fun they could be. They weren't worth it in the long run. They were emotionally too expensive and the upkeep was complicated. They were like having a vacuum cleaner around the house that broke all the time and only Einstein could fix it. She wanted her next lover to be a broom."

Empiezo una nueva vida, un rompecabezas que tendré que armar, muy lejos lejos de su influjo, de esa extravagancia que rompió mi ser.
