Many have asked about my address in order to send donations. And, since my new theme song is “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” money is appreciated at this point. Restoring/rebuilding one’s life from scratch is expensive at all points. This has been made clear to me over the past week. Everything needs to be restored.
“Need a stainless steel steamer to slip into your steaming pot? Tough. Go buy one. And while you’re at it buy the steaming pot. And the rest of the pans. And some knives. Oh and the stove you will steam them on….”
One element I have decided to restore to some extent is my library. I lost, counting those stored in the garage, some 3,000 volumes. To be honest the very thought of moving them… AGAIN… was exhausting to contemplate. Well, problem solved. But as to the NEXT library, I’ve determined one rule alone; only classics will be allowed and those I will cap at 300, and each of those will be a well-made book.
Hence, although I still need money donations, the address above will serve is you have a well made classic you’ve read and don’t mind parting with.
