"For Adams, the American dream was embodied in the Main Reading Room at the Library of Congress.
It was a room that the nation had gifted to itself, so that every American — “old and young, rich and poor, Black and white, the executive and the laborer, the general and the private, the noted scholar and the schoolboy” — could sit together, “reading at their own library provided by their own democracy."
I packed for camping the other day and got thinking about my EDC. I love my EDC. I have a knife and a lighter and a pen and a book. Covers basically all my needs out of the house.
Just finished A Prayer for the Crown-Shy by Becky Chambers. Loved it. They have all their needs met, in the story, but they still need... something.
I'm looking for something.
I wonder how long it's been since I logged into twitter. For starters, it was still twitter.
I logged on a couple times to look at my 'friends' list which had <5 people still active in it 10 months ago or so....
Wonder it's worth logging on again just to see if there are any new Mastodon handles on there since I left.
If I lived forever
Would I plant a tree today
Or wait until tomorrow
I can't believe I've been here for six years.
There's a bank advertising with greyhounds and it's working. I miss my greyhounds.
Big day today - got my youngest his own library card ;)
He told the librarian he was checking out the best book in the world - "Llama destroys the world" - and also got a dozen more.
The library is packed today and I love it.
I need to fix the makerspace vinyl cutter and print custom local branch merch.....
Energized, I leap into the sky
The sun chose me
I'm never going back
To that fucking ocean
Quit my job and cleaned out my desk today, for the world's smallest career shift. It's still very weird. When I went through my old desk I found paperwork I saved from my previous job too ;) It's all going into the desk at my new job...
