So, there I was on Saturday morning: heading towards the airport to bring our boy home for Easter, thinking about not thinking about learning new things, because I was on holiday, when I spotted it and we screeched to a halt.
Actually, that's not quite true. A crossroads and several sets of traffic lights meant the others circled while I jumped out to take a photo and leapt back in again at the third pass. It's a good "something new", don't you think?
Until Saturday, I had no idea we were home to the world's only Emergency Poet and her amazing ambulance. On the way back from the airport I did a bit of research. With my phone in my hand, I've just realised, I'm a new kind of mobile librarian: maybe I need a beauty of a retro vehicle and a will to wander too. The world's only Emergency Librarian. Let the facts come to you. (Uncle Dave and I did once seriously discuss buying a fifty year old mobile library, but that's another story) Back to the poet, who, it turns out, has a website and a book Emergency Poet: An Anti stress Poetry Anthology edited by Deborah Alma
I'm sorry now that I didn't have time to stop. Although I'm happy to say that I wasn't in desperate need of a poetical fillip then, or at any time this weekend. It's been a nice one. Our boy is back; and this year's Easter basket from Little E has pride of place in the kitchen, where I can see it every time I pass. It looks at its best at night, It lights up. With bunny lights. Honestly, he thinks of everything.
Last week Mardi, Maggie, Julia, Alexa, Susanne, Helena, Fiona, Ruth, Deb, Becky, Liz, Stephanie, Cheri, Mary-Lou and Mitra were all kind enough to share their new, weekend acquired knowledge. Did you learn any thing new or try something for the first time? Let us know! We'll give you a wave! Have a good week.
