A Bookmark From the Library

This bookmark was sitting, mysteriously abandoned, on a table in the back workroom, and I just love it. It's from the Minnesota Historical Society. It's a picture of a jar of sand. In the middle is a sand rendition of Minnehaha Falls that's nicer than most oil paintings I've seen of the falls. We get a lot of bookmarks at the library, lost and found, and like most lost and found items they never get claimed. I have several bookmarks at home, but I'm not so good at using them and end up going with a stray scrap of paper, or other methods I dare not mention. I should try to use some of my nice bookmarks, but I think I'm afraid I'd lose them. I'm sure I would, but maybe that wouldn't be so bad. Maybe the secret is that bookmarks are made to be lost. And found.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
