Miscellanea, 3/4/21


Two anniversaries to be acknowledged:

  • February 27, 2020 was the last time I visited the library in person.
  • March 10, 2020 was the last game of ultimate frisbee I played. Actually, it was only half a game. We called it off because it was raining and the field was becoming too muddy.

Of course, I’ve availed myself of on-line libraries as much as I ever have, and the pandemic hasn’t kept Eric and I from going over to the park to run and throw on our own. There’s light at the end of the tunnel, as he and I have started discussing where we’re going to go eat once we’re vaccinated and when we’ll restart the pickup game we host.

Unwieldy Library Update

Finished cataloging books in the living room, kitchen, and bedroom. This included computer books, recipe books, and the majority of my poetry collection. Moved on to the back room/office/library. I took books to the middle school little library and a free little library I know of a couple streets over.

  • Books cataloged: 465
  • Unread books: 241
  • Favorite found “bookmark”: A polling place information postcard for the 1996 presidential election.


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.

  1. It’s been ages since I’ve been to a library in-person. I was not much of a visitor prior to the shutdown so it’s more than a year, maybe two! However, I am signed up for four library systems now so I use the eBook services religiously.

    Being outdoors has saved my butt this past year. Walks or just sitting outside is a must now. I don’t know how I lived before. I used to sit at my desk at work all day long and only got up for coffee. Now, I must get up from my remote workstation and get out.

    1. All of 2019, I had made a point of getting out moreโ€”even if it was just to the library. And then 2020… I am really glad we have two parks in walking distance. Even getting a little sun is good.
