MIT, where I work, is a conglomerate of endless hallways. Buildings are attached to buildings; one segues into the next. Bulletin boards are everywhere, and, as I walk the long halls to my office in the morning and back to the car at night, I glance at a changing collection of flyers and posters pinned up by student groups and campus organizations. I read some as carefully as I read cereal boxes, in other words, pretty thoroughly.
This one, taped to the interior window of room filled with public computers, has been up all semester.
Who sponsors it, I don’t know. Perhaps its simple, subversive reminder is the humane work of underground activists.
In the bottom right corner, all it says is love your self. savor living.
P.S. Here’s the video of an R.E.M. song that tugs at me, every time.
