Well, the multi-million dollar library, situated only 1.7kms from our new home, has accepted me as a member. All very computerised and modern. Sadly, I don't have any time for reading right now, as every day is taken up with the house renovations which seem to be expandng in more ways that one. Certainly the house has expanded - and it is starting to look very good. But, as each project is begun and, in some cases, even finished, we see yet another improvement that could be achieved. We have had so many tradesmen here that I almost feel a spooky loneliness when there are no workers making hammering and sawing noises throughout the house. But, oh my, how lovely it will be when it is all finished.
I have a pile of newspapers and magazines to read and no time to read them. And now I have joined the wonderful new library - and have a small nortebook with a list of about eight books I have been yearning to read - and yet no time. But it will all come to be and there will be days in the future when I will be able to sit in the glorious sunshine and read whatever - and for however long - I wish. It's only patience - and a bit more hard work that's required.
I'll get there!
PS: The new library lets you borrow up to 20 items at a time! Blimey! Who has that amount of spare time?
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
