Oh, that poem, beautiful and sparse with words and heart-breaking. I just checked the Salt Path out of my library, I’d heard of it while I was in England and then you mentioned it too, so it’s on my shelf now. Enjoy the break, and the ALA presentation.

As for time vs. money, I spent a lot of time working, traveling for work, to the point where friends never knew if I was home or away. I’d do it differently perhaps, although I did see and learn a lot overseas. I worked part-time for a few years after I retired, and then got to the point where I knew I just didn’t care enough any more to do good work so I stopped and now I’m looking at what’s next.
