A Friend's Message from Melbourne, Australia
November 10, 2015 12:59pm CST
Yesterday my phone went off and I recognised the sound as not a text or a phone call, but a Facebook personal message. I wondered who it could be. It was from a friend, letting me know she was in the Victoria State Library in Melbourne, Australia. I was so envious. I knew she was in Australia, but hadn't realised she was going to Melbourne. She remembered the State Library is one of my favourite places to visit in Melbourne, so flicked me a quick photo in a message. I go there every time I'm in town. I find the atmosphere both relaxing and stimulating. That was such a nice way to have my day punctuated with a quick glimpse at the library without even being there. The photo here was taken on my latest visit there, In August.

It is an amazing place, several levels, housing many valuable historical documents. People go tree mainly to research, as you can see on the ground floor, or to enjoy the exhibits around the various floors as I do. That photo was from the highest floor the public are able to access.

It's a beautiful pic of your favorite place, my dear! No wonder you like that place. Me? I haven't been to beautiful places overseas. I just see thosr in pics. But, if by chance I can go out of my dear Philippines, I want to be in San Francisco, California. For what reason? I don't know. That place just popped up in my dreamslist when I was in high school.

I do not remember when it was the last time I visited a library perhaps when I was in college. Reading has never been my interest apart from a few magazines and the newspaper. I used to read but now with so much going around here I hardly find the time.
