America as it may be

The library and America as we dream it is:

I pull into the library parking lot to start my work day. In the back of the lot is a large mobile home, and I think "How nice, they're visiting our library to stock up on materials for their big trip!"

The library and America as it is:

I leave work for the day and see the mobile home is still in the exact same place in the back of our parking lot. And I think "We are their big trip."


  1. And it may be that the mobile home IS home, and they are glad not to be ousted from the parking lot. I was up there today and didn't notice it. They've moved on?

    1. Maybe, but yes, moved on. The blog is currently running about 6 days ahead of time, so this would have been early last week.


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.
