Today I was helping out an older friend. He has given up driving and is now stuck at home until he finds his way with handy dart etc., it’s a struggle to say the least. Where we have been able to make a positive connection is through the library.
they have an outreach program for seniors and we had the speaker phone on with the person running the Fraser valley program. She was wonderful and so attentive! We were able to find out what books could be delivered regularly that my friend could enjoy - including some language books.
it really reminded me how much a library has been an asset and sanctuary for me. Without dwelling on the details for a moment, I just love the feeling of being at a library and enjoying the entire experience of a library.
the more I thought about it today, the more I felt this would be a good artist theme to explore. So, you hopefully will read more in upcoming blog activity how I explore my emotions of libraries through my art!
