Words in Progress
Thursdays I’m on the front desk with Miriam who has never read a book in her life, but has a 99.9% rating for library fine collection.
An elderly man approaches. Please let him ask about a book.
Man: I think I left my scarf in the library.
Miriam: You’ll need to describe it Sir.
Me: It’ll be one of those things you wrap around and around your neck. (Opens drawer.)
Miriam: (Hand on drawer.) He’s supposed to describe it first.
We are surrounded by a sea of words, a wide wondrous ocean of love and learning, and I am drowning in banality.

Love your library! I am lucky enough to have two wonderful libraries nearby where I can work, relax, socialise and READ. I also spend not-so-idle moments watching and listening.
