“Should is a futile word. It’s about what didn’t happen. It belongs in a parallel universe. It belongs in another dimension of space.”

Loving this marbled paper book cover! From one of the many travelogues about Africa we are adding to our digital collections. From 1894: De Koulikoro à Tombouctou sur la canonniere “Le Mage.”

July with sun-filled leaves drifting among the butterflies
I have been coming to this morning light since the day I was born
I saw its childhood as I sat alone in silence by the high window
no one else saw it no one else would ever recognize it
it is the same child now who watches the clouds change
they appear from out of sight and change as the moment passes
         through them

W.S. Merwin, "Summer Sky," from The Moon Before Morning (Copper Canyon Press, 2014)
