The Library Card

Day 277

“Ever since we had arrived in the United States, my classmates kept asking me about magic carpets.  ‘They don’t exist’ I always said.  I was wrong.  Magic carpets do exist.  But they are called library cards.”

-Firoozeh Dumas, Laughing Without an Accent


This weekend I did something I haven’t done in a while.  I sat down to read a book.  Not for work.  Not in bits and pieces over a month.  Just a library book.  Just for me.
