So, as you know, two years ago, the HML had our nifty little “souvenir book.” Basically, it was an almost-pocket-sized book about the Library. It included the Library’s history, stuff about Miller, stuff about the staff, Miller quotes, and lots of other fascinating stuff. Almost like a scrapbook.
Needless to say, it was a smash. It sold out and now we’re making a new one!
And here’s the really cool part: you can be a part of it by writing a 150-word anecdote or testimonial about the Library. And photos too!!
Simply send your testimonial or whatever to email@example.com. It be about anything: what Miller means to you, your favorite memory, anything.
We’ve gotten some cool stuff, like this one, from Candice Dixon, who ruminated on “her first time” at the HML, which was the May 2010 Edward Sharpe show:
Bodies were crushed together under a canopy of inky sky and burning stars. It was frenetic, wild and carefree. We danced with abandon, our partners all around us.
And then it happened…Kismet. A centripetal force swept over us all, this veiled thing wove through the crowd. We were all on a journey and where it curved, we followed. Everything seemed to shimmer, whether it was from the string of lights swooping low over us, or the sparks that seemed to emanate from the stage. It started off quietly, barely a whisper, but the same chant over and over…Voices all around seemed to surround us, slowly, softly until it began to rise.
It was a swelling sound, an unseen force, burbling up and unable to be contained. And then there was peace. The crescendo hit and washed over us all and in that one moment you felt it, the feeling we long for, the knowledge that in that one perfect moment, all was well and right with the world. “Om Nashi Me. I will love you forever. I’m loving you now.
