The George Peabody Library, formerly the Library of the Peabody Institute of the City of Baltimore, dates from the founding of the Peabody Institute in 1857. It contains more than 300,000 titles—most of which date from the eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries. Renowned for its striking architectural interior, the Peabody Stack Room contains five tiers of ornamental cast-iron balconies, which rise dramatically to the skylight 61 feet above the floor.

Eus, France. I once had a French teacher who told me that there are little villages in France that were abandoned after WWII. I don't know if it's true, but ever since then I've had a dream of finding a picturesque little village - like the one in the picture, or the one in the film Chocolat - buying it, and turning it into a place for artists and artisans to live and work.

"Pay attention to poetry. Pay attention to music. Pay attention to paintings and sculptures and photo exhibits and ballets and plays. Why? Because art is God's way of saying hello. Your world is shouting out to you, revealing something intrinsically glorious about itself. Listen carefully. Love art, the way art loves life. Don't let all this go unnoticed." -Neale Walsh
