For the past year, I have been going to the library downtown because the branch that is four blocks from where I live has been closed for much-needed renovations. Going downtown every couple of weeks wasn’t a big deal but it was inconvenient having to take the bus. Instead of a pleasant ten-minute walk, there was the waiting for the bus, the twenty minutes to get to the library and the same to get back home, not to mention needing exact change for the bus fare. The neighborhood branch reopened last week and I included a visit there when I took my walk the other day; it felt good to be at my library again, to see the old staff and meet the new. But it was strange and made me sad to see that though the new library is beautiful, with desks and comfy chairs, new computers, lots of movies and CD’s and even outdoor tables and chairs on two patios, there are fewer actual books on the shelves and somehow that just seems wrong.

New Moon

There are times that are bad…and very sad.
Like the long lonely night…filled with fright.
But do not worry because someday…it will be okay.
Just like the small new moon…will be big and full soon.
Darkness will be in the past…and happiness will last.

unbelievable

I think about my mother a lot especially in May because of Mother’s Day and because her birthday was on May 1.  We didn’t always see things the same way and that caused much distress for everyone in our house.  We seemed so different but I now know we were very much alike and that was part of the problem. For all our arguments and disagreements, shouting and tears there was one thing I knew for sure and never doubted…she loved me and no matter what she was there for me whenever I called.  I was blessed with an unbelievable mother and I miss my Ma every day.

I am flabbergast
Saying goodbye to Winter
It is Spring at last

Where The Arrow Led

When she tells them how they met she doesn’t care what people say.
Maybe it was happenstance that they met where they did.
All she knows is that she is very glad she went where the arrow pointed that day.
