No loss is felt more keenly than the loss of what might have been. No nostalgia hurts as much as nostalgia for things that never existed.

regardingphilly:

Inside a Victorian house sandwiched between two greek fraternity houses is one of the best bookstores in Philadelphia. Remarkably well curated, A House of Our Own is stuffed with volumes of excellent quality and content at very reasonable prices. 

Spread over two full floors, the bookstore has some new volumes, but features a stunning selection of used books on a wide range of topics. On a recent visit I walked away with a four volume set of books for which I’d been searching more than a year. Bookstores from D.C. to Baltimore, Boston to New York (and even Baldwin’s Book Barn) had let me down, but A House of Our Own came through with a pristine set at a great price.

I highly recommend several hours at this fantastic bookstore. A House of Our Own is located at 3902 Spruce Street, on the edge of the University of Pennsylvania’s campus.

 
Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there. And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.
