Oh hello there picture of me working in the library XD Okay, so I'm slightly bored and slightly hungry. Jack is working on something next to me, and I'm just waiting for half an hour until we can go and get lunch in Cafe Rouge - one of the yummiest places ever.
On the way to university this morning I was feeling a little bit sad. Although I am making huge leaps with this anxiety, it is still fairly slow progress. Slowly by surely, and this morning it just made me a feel a bit rubbish. And then a small little miracle happened. I was walking past statue of a lion embracing a lamb - a statue I have walked past many times - and there was a little book nestled in the lion's paws. At first I assumed that someone had left it behind, but it had a sign on it saying 'I am not lost! I am just travelling!'. Looking into it further I realised that the book was meant to be found, read, enjoyed, and then left in another random place to be read by someone else. It totally brightened my day, and I'm now in possession of a new book to read, which I've been struggling to find a decent one for ages.
There was one more little miracle though. The current photography project I'm working on is exploring the women left behind in world war two, and their contribution to our country. This book just happens t be be about just that - it's the story of a young lady whose new husband goes to war and leaves her alone and pregnant to fend for herself. I can't think of anything more perfect.
On the website it lets you release your own book into the wild too. You can track where books have been and some of them fly all over the world with people.
I would like to thank whoever left this book on that statue. Thankyou so much!
