“It's only a ROOM with shelves and books,
but it's far more magical than it looks.”

“It's a jet on which I soar
to lands that exist no more
.”

“Or a key with which I find
answers to questions crowding my mind.”

“Building my habit of learning and growing,
asking and researching till I reach knowing.”

“Here, I've been a mermaid and an elf
I've even learned to be more myself.”

“I think that I shall never see
a place that's been more useful to me.
With encouraging kind friends with wit
Who tell me to dream big and never quit.
It's only a room with shelves and books,
but it's far more magical than it looks.”

Did you ever think, Joe, that you could build a career designing websites for tourist places?

There's nothing better in winter than to snuggle up with a good BOOK... Libraries are great, Joe... That one --and the area around ---look fabulous...Love those blue skies also!!!

We have a little more snow here this morning--just a dusting but pretty.
