There are so many new people at my library these days. This is the result of so many old people leaving. One would think we would have to hire new people for this to happen. We haven't managed to do this, but apparently, like nature, libraries abhor a vacuum. And so in these spaces where the old people were, new people wash in like rain in potholes.

Some of these new people even have the same names as old ones! Is, for instance, the new Mai similar to the old Mai? I don't know! It's all too exhausting to get to know the new people. Do they even work here? Or did they just wander in and get caught up in all the vacated spaces. Maybe they have nothing to do with the library and are just spinning around like fallen branches caught up in whirlpools. Who are they, what are they doing, can I help them?

I don't know. But if they're still here in a month I'll ask them.

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.
