|My daughter Amanda, a recent graduate of Grinnell College, now works in our town's library, the Cedar Falls Public Library. This gig as a Children's Librarian has been something of a dream job for Amanda. Below are a couple of pictures of her reading a book to some gathered tykes and parents. Note also the puppet theatre behind Amanda's storytelling throne |
I spent a couple of dreamy hours browsing through the time travel books, then settling on a graphic-novel rendition of Wells's Time Machine, which I read from cover to cover. I traveled in time back to childhood when I had read Wells's story as a comic book in the Classics Illustrated series. Thanks, Amanda.
A little reminder: you can click on the pics above to see larger versions. Well worth it to inspect Amanda's time machine up close. Oh, also, if you didn't get around to googling TARDIS, it's an acronym that stands for "Time And Relative Dimension(s) In Space": the moniker of The Doctor's time/space ship that looks like a London police box (in the British science fiction show Dr. Who).
On a meta-front, sorry again that I have been neglecting the blog. I'll try to be better about it. Keeping up the blog, I've just decided, is a new New Year's resolution. Added just now. So
