used books settle
in their new home
Karl and I enjoy thrift stores. I am noticing more books, perhaps for a few dollars or less. These are books that recall another time, or perhaps are more recent. I might buy a novel, or a book of poems, or devotions.
Our roads can be icy and it takes a long time for the warm weather to arrive by Lake Michigan. So we have walked around Good Will, Bethesda Thrift Store, a Habitat For Humanity store in Sheboygan, My Best Friend’s Closet in Oostburg, and other places.
I love being older now, yet often miss days gone by. Yet these days can be present-tense in another way.
