The Prodigal Spy, Etc. by Églantine on Flickr.

This is why we have a rule in my house that we’re only allowed to purchase digital books or out of print books that have not been digitized, or borrow from the library. Cos otherwise our tiny bedroom would look exactly like this. Only with beds and cats and things taking up even more room.

When I can’t read my books, I’m always thinking about them by Sarah McMahon

I WONDER WHAT MY BOOKS ARE DOING RIGHT NOW? DO THEY MISS ME? I MISS THEM. 
WHAT WILL THEY SAY WHEN I COME HOME? SHOULD I MAKE A SPECIAL DINNER? DO M Y BOOKS TALK TO EACH OTHER BEHIND MY BACK? WHAT DO THEY SAY?

I think that one really big thing about the millennial generation is that we are going to have so many different careers over a lifetime. And that fluidity also translates into what our work structure looks like.

These poems were found in a manuscript of poems created in the Navajo and English language by Navajo students at the Phoenix Indian School around 1940.  The project was entitled, Littler Herder in Autumn.

The photograph was taken of a family residence ca. 1930.  This traditional Navajo residence, known as a hogan, is the type of home that the student was describing.

In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, we would like to share just some of the remarkable pieces of Native American history of tribes in southern California and Arizona.  All of these records come from our holdings of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (RG 75).

so much depends
upon
a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens.

William Carlos Williams

I’ve always loved this poem.

The rules for quoting and attributing can seem arbitrary at times, with little connection to the respect for intellectual property that originally motivated them. You could think of them just as a kind of literary etiquette. But etiquette is just what comes of reducing moral principles to the explicit codes of conduct that govern our civil life. [Rand] Paul may not have been guilty of dishonesty, just cavalier disrespect for the rules. You don’t put on the feathers of another, not even the drab ones that you find lying around on the ground.
