This Lady


This lady visited the shop and told me about how, long ago she was a librarian, then later in her life she was a volunteer librarian, then later she became the best reader she had ever known and then she nodded and said that getting a book to its reader was…. just the thing…..the absolute thing. When she left she leaned backwards as she was going through the door and said that she just really liked people and that was the thing and she looked pretty happy. When she leaned back I knew she was saying something important, this news that must have governed her life, whether her life had been diabolical, peaceful or useful or a combination of all three. She just really liked people.
