look out, ladies. ;)
a spoken word piece i just came across.
It started with your name @byleaveswelive and became a tree.… ... We know that a library is so much more than a building full of books… a book is so much more than pages full of words.… This is for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas….. a gesture (poetic maybe?)
For @natlibscot - A gift in support of libraries, books, words, ideas..... (& against their exit)
For @filmhouse - A gift in support of libraries, books, words, ideas..... and all things *magic*
For @scotstorycenter - A gift in support of libraries, books, works, ideas..... Once upon a time there was a book and in the book was a nest and in the nest was an egg and in the egg was a dragon and in the dragon was a story.....
To @edbookfest 'A gift' This is for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas...... & festivals xxIt includes a teabag filled with cut out letters, on the tag of which are the words "by leaves we live". The cup on the top has a swirl of words which read " Nothing beats a nice cup of tea (or coffee) and a really good BOOK", and on the 'tray' next to the cupcake it says "except maybe a cake as well".
To @edincityoflit 'A gift' LOST (albeit in a good book) This is for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas.... "No infant has the power of deciding..... by what circumstances (they) shall be surrounded.. Robert OwenIntriguingly, this is crafted from a copy of The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinnerby James Hogg.
For Central Library ‘A Gift’ @Edinburgh_CC This is for you in support of libraries, books, words, ideas…. LIBRARIES ARE EXPANSIVEThe word "expensive" has had the E crossed out and replaced with an A. No question of the creator's views on library cuts... The tag then notes, "Words on book - Edwin Morgan". No talk of Rankin this time!
"Hopefully next time I'll be able to linger longer - I've left a little something for you near Women's Anthologies X. In support of Libraries, Books, Words and Ideas...."A quick dash into the library led to the discovery of another gift.
"To @ByLeavesWeLive....... THE GIFTS "Gloves of bee's ful, cap of the Wren's Wings......." Norman McCaig .... maybe sometimes impossible things... In support of LIbraries, Books, Words Ideas...."And with the suspicious addition in the corner reading 10/10.
"It's important that a story is not too long ......does not become tedious .......'You need to know when to end a story,' she thought.
"For @NtlMuseumsScot A Gift Your friends at @edbookfest suggested you might like this. .... In support of libraries, books, words, ideas and those places that house our treasures......"And in the corner, 9/10.
"@CuratorEMG A Gift "The stories are in the stones" Ian Rankin In support of Libraries, Books, Words, Ideas ...... and Writers."And the 8/10 in the corner, confirming that we've found them all!
