[A]nd the world
Whirls green on a string, then
The leaves go quiet, wink
From their own shade, secretly.
Keep still, just a moment, leaves.
There is something I am trying to remember."
College dorm room idea:
1) Buy a copy of Just Little Things (they’re super cheap on Amazon).
2) Tear out the pages (you’ll feel awful but just do it) and trim the edges (optional).
3) Pin the pages up on your wall using thumbtacks, tape them up, hang them up with clothespins and yarn, or whatever you wish!
You’ll have a colorful wall full of all things happy! The pictures above are a few pages from the actual book, so just imagine a wall with 200+ more. :)
Some fans have made something similar (here), but with the book, you won’t have to spend the time/money printing or writing everything out.
Let me know if you like this idea! If you end up doing this, send me photos if you can! I’d love to see them. :)
When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages."
