I am back at work and missing the extravagance of time to read your blog posts and respond in a timely manner to your kind comments on mine. The library is not yet open to the public and I don’t know yet when it will be. (If you didn’t know that’s where I work, at the local library.)  There is just a skeleton crew at work right now and I miss the staff who have yet to return. It’s nice to be able to see regular patrons, if only from the proscribed social distance. We are doing curbside pick up. Patrons order their books, movies, games, etc. online and come to the back door where they have to call in to let us know they are there to pick up their holds. Items are then checked out on their account and put in bags which are then placed on a table outside for them to retrieve. It’s interesting, but also strange being in a library empty of people, except for a few souls. I am grateful though that the director and powers that be are taking a very slow and careful approach to re-opening. There is a lot to consider and several changes are in the works to deal with this new ‘normal’.  Things will never be the same. Still, I am hopeful. I am also a bit nervous. But so far, so good. Life will, no doubt, look very different when all is said and done. Yet, there is much to be grateful for and many blessings to count as we navigate our way through these deep waters. Stay well my friends, and stay safe.

  1. The good part, for me, about working was the thought I was making a small difference. Now that I’m retired I have the time you will be missing but have struggled to “feel” I’m contributing to our world. Don’t forget to wear your life-vest, swim fins and snorkle to stay safe while you are helping others fill their lives with the knowledge and expanded world view that comes from reading.

    1. You are making a huge difference in the lives of so many people. Maybe they don’t comment, but you’re putting it out there and doing more good than you know. I am so grateful for your posts. I think we put too much emphasis on paid work.

      Yes, I am wearing all the ppe and keeping a social distance from coworkers. We are safe. Thanks for your concern. (I left my snorkle wear at home though haha.)
