Crossing the not-so-great divide
Well, I up and did it! I changed jobs and I am now an adult reference librarian in a different branch of the same library system. Mind you I still serve children and families I just do it from a different desk, and I have no programs to design and prep for. Why did I do it? I am a creature driven by instinct and intuition. I have a certain biological wiring that alerts me to danger and urges me move on and change my circumstance. I had been feeling beleaguered for some time about children's work and my role as a public librarian. The summer is always rough. I am not good at waiting out my peculiar ailment sometimes called restless head syndrome so I cut my hair, shed 2 lbs left the puppets, paper dolls egg shakers and flannel board behind and started to walk a new walk and let me tell you it's a very different rhythm. I still read children's books and check the blogs. What's up with Esme? So begins a new era of blogging. Bon chance!
Here is a picture my daughter sent me from Paris. She is living with a host family with trois enfants and here is one of their learning tools. Look familiar?
