Old tomes fill vintage shelves that bear new dust yet computer screens gleam. Renovation’s vibrations turns a page.

    I love what you have done for the vignette. I can picture this scene vividly in my mind. I ove the way the poem alludes to the future and the past while set in the present. Perfect.

    Interesting work..I notice when I go to the local library on occasion that people spend a lot of time using the computers and it is not to find a book..Enjoyed reading this morning..Sara

    Love books, have an e-reader, but still love my real books...... No shake rattle or roll here, up island a bit they sort of felt it but not here in the center of the island. Hit higher up in Haida Gwaii, no tsunami, just one big wave
