As I step up efforts to downsize our material baggage, I am facing a dilemma of what to do with the copious books residing in our home. They seem quite comfortable and content in the living room bookcases and in a couple of bedrooms. Unfortunately, we may not be able to fit all of them in the smaller abode. Some of them have not even been cracked open yet!
I will have to be selective with which ones can reside in the new bookcase arrangement, which ones will go into storage and which ones will have to find a new home. It's a difficult decision.
As I sort through the books of different subjects and attempt to maintain a logical order, I think about the library work term in Muskoka many years ago.
As I sort out my little corner of the world, I acknowledge that the challenges I face are insignificant compared to recent tragedies and losses experienced by our fellow citizens. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.
