Lightly Child, Lightly.

Walked by this box at Cove Island Park, what, 100x? 200x? 500x? Had never seen it before.  Today, I noticed.


Notes:

  • Photos: DK: Daybreak. Daybreak. November 12, 2020. 6:11 to 6:30 am, 59° F. Rain. Cove Island Park, Stamford CT
  • Inspired by: “By hook or by crook, I hope that you will possess yourselves of money enough to travel and to idle, to contemplate the future or the past of the world, to dream over books and loiter at street corners and let the line of thought dip deep into the stream.” – Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own (Thank you Beth @ Alive on All Channels)

  • Post Title & Inspiration: Aldous Huxley: “It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.”

  6. I’ve seen a few in and around Chicago; they are such a delight, as is the one you shared with us in this post. Thank you, David! Cher xo

    P.S. I wonder how tiny the library cards are? *okay, throwback and not that funny, but I tried!* 😉 Cher xo

  7. Whoever had the idea of these little free libraries deserves a medal for kindness and thoughtfulness and many other good qualities.

  11. This bench is my favourite of the morning’s slide show… And isn’t it amazing how we can walk by something hundreds of times and not see it and then one day, there it is. How long has that been there?
    I love these little “libraries”.
