Once again, it’s pretty late. I was so close to posting this around 2230 on Wednesday, but something distracted me.
And here I am at 0154 on Thursday.
When I think of what public gathering space I miss the most, my mind keeps coming back to our excellent public library.
Back in “normal” times – like the beginning of March – I’d be at our library three or four times a week. I’m not going wax poetic about what it means to mean and I why I miss it so much.
Just trust me – second only to worshiping physically with others, it’s what I miss the most.
I saw this today when I was walking around the neighborhood with my wife:
I smiled, b/c I love the idea of these LittleFreeLibraries you see occasionally in suburban yards, school yards and other places.
I felt sad though too, b/c if you look carefully you’ll see there’s a handwritten note inside the empty space which says “Closed for now.”
