Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, births, funerals. (I hate to include divorces in the list, but they happen, too.) Sarah’s birthday, the one we chose for her based on her age of four months when adopted, did not go unmarked. I did, however, let the second anniversary of Books in Northport slip by without mention. Saw it coming ahead of time, but then we were on vacation.... The day before our return, September 13, was two years from my first post.
What to say about this overall project and its two years (so far) of existence? Have I strayed from my original mission? Scaled the heights or fallen down on the job or both, depending on the day’s post under consideration? That’s not for me to say. I do enjoy sharing my world—Northport, Dog Ears Books, the beauty of northern Michigan, the delight given to me by books and dogs—and am pleased when other people, who also enjoy these topics, visit and comment. And now, you few, you happy few, is there anything you’d like to see changed, expanded or omitted in future? I don’t promise to honor all requests but will take each one (if any there are) under careful consideration.
