You Are What You Read!

Winter is not going gentle is it?  I have been thinking a lot about resilience this week.  Webster’s Dictionary defines it as “an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change”. Tuesday was such a tease!  It just could not have been a lovelier hat-free, coat-negotiable day, and then to wake up to the lung exploding cold of Thursday?  Well, that was just plain cruel.  But just knowing that going forward Tuesday would soon be the new normal and Thursday a distant, unpleasant memory made it that much easier to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Also, this is a Full Moon Weekend.  This Full Moon has many different names:  The Full Worm Moon for the alleged thawing that is supposed to be happening but is not, the Full Crust Moon for the texture of the earth from the freezing and thawing, the Full Sap Moon which those of us who park on street under trees can attest to, and The Full Lenten Moon.  Whatever you call it the message is clear, we are nearing the end of this endless winter. So keep bouncing back People!  We are on the upswing!    Sweet Ann is asking us a question with her Words of Wisdom this week.  “Is that the best you’ve got?”  Let’s all show our better side, shall we?   This week we have a Boy-Toy and his boat, inside dirt, more Mars (still the planet not the God of War), emotional damage and some wooing. And of course, The Playlist!

Let us begin!

This week’s You Are What You Read is in honor of Louise Parker Berry.  As I am sure you are all aware, Louise is retiring after 35 years of being our fearless leader, tireless advocate, and all around cheerleader. You could not hope to work under a better woman.  She has always allowed us to speak in our own voices without censure and that’s a really remarkable thing.  Not many library directors would let me refer to Paul Newman as a hottie, or allow the weekly playlist to make an appearance.  It is because of her that Darien Library is such a wonderful place and true gift not only to you all, but to the people who get to work here.  So thanks Louise!  We will miss you fiercely.  This week we have pain, nostalgia, a confession, Paris, a disappearance, Manhattan and Berlin.  And of course, we can’t forget  The Playlist.

The SoNo Loft, after being silent for the last two weeks, finally has a new message for us.  It was worth waiting for and something I am sure we all can heartily endorse:  SNO-MORE!  Hopefully we will get some quality melting this weekend and maybe even a crocus or snow drop sighting.  Those of you with witch hazel bushes in the yard can probably attest that they are either blooming or about to. They always feel like a sort of miracle to me this time of year with their golden blossoms and clean scent: a  nice reminder that we are nearing the end of this endless winter. So I wish you a sighting of outdoor living plant material that is not an evergreen. That would be nice. Over the last weekend we went on a little road trip in hopes of a change of scene being a bit of a mood boost.  This meant that there was driving on the Cross Bronx and it brings me to another sign of spring:  Potholes.  The Traveling Companion was riding shotgun and I swear it was a job akin to looking out for icebergs on a ship.  We made it through without incident but it was sobering to see all the poor folks on the side of the road with flats and dead axles.  Be cautious out there!   This week we have a disgusting mess, some take-out, Paris, and a playlist that will provide some background music while your trusty Co-Pilot scans the road ahead.

Let us begin!
