I'm Down

Another Rainy Day

Today I went to three libraries. The first was the Robert Frost Library at Amherst College.



Inside is this bust of the poet Robert Frost, a teacher at Amherst College after whom the library is named.



The rain to the wind said,
'You push and I'll pelt.'
They so smote the garden bed
That the flowers actually knelt,
And lay lodged--though not dead.
I know how the flowers felt.

— Robert Frost


I was also at the UMass Library. I never use its official name because I disapprove of it.



Someone knocked over the cigarette disposal thing in front.



What a mess for someone to clean up!

I also went to the library at Hampshire College, which like UMass is located in Amherst.



Love is in the air at Hampshire - or at least on the ground by the picnic table.



At the Hampshire College bus stop, at first I didn't notice this smeared graffiti. Then I realized it said, DON'T TAKE MY PANTS OFF, DAD.



Is that some kind of sick joke or a cry for help?

Notice the water draining out - my guess is that someone thought to drain the thing (it has been raining) before dumping it as it gets a whole lot lighter without the water in it.

Oh, and the "real" name of the UM Library is the "Tower Library."
