Toilet Wisdom

In a toilet stall of the women’s washroom at the Kelowna Library, I read these words of wisdom:

Look at the sky: that is for you. Look at each person’s face as you pass them on the street: those faces are for you. And the street itself, and the ground under the street, and the ball of fire underneath the ground: all these things are for you. They are as much for you as they are for other people. Remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing.

Beneath this, someone else wrote:


We can find inspiration everywhere!

    Being from Kelowna, I know it’s a city that originates poets, but who knew they are so literary on the ORL stall walls? Huh. Thanks for sharing that!
