Storyboard Text

  • Sometimes the notes are angry messages that have been scribbled in between the edge of the page and the text. Saying what they'd do if they could meet the author in person.
  • Other times what's been written are just passive phrases like "Whatever" or "Come on". Sometimes I wonder what the person who writes a comment like "Don't be a ninny" looks like.
  • We students try to leave as little as possible because we're just not interested in what we're reading. Stating the obvious by writing "irony" a thousand times in A Modest Proposal.
  • And there are times where all someone writes is an exclamation mark or two to show that they agree.
  • If you never wrote "Man vs. Nature" in a book in college then you never truely graduated.
  • At some point we've all written something on that little blank sleeve of a page to show how we felt.
  • Even monks wrote notes here and there about how painful it was copying the entire bible word for word or about something that caught their eye.
  • And unless you had Blake's angry writing all over it, you've never really read Joshua Reynolds.
  • But there's one that I haven't forgotten that I found in my library's copy of Catcher in the Rye.
  • And I never thought a little message left in a book could make me feel so much loneliness.
  • Covered in some grease stains, a note written by some girl that I could only imagine of meeting said,"Pardon the egg salad stains, but I'm in love."
