Today is day one of a two day book sale fundraiser for my library, sponsored by our Friends. I popped over to see what they had available, which was a mix of titles. Initially it didn't look like much but I found lots of great things.

An armful of books cost me a whopping $11.50. It's a small start toward the $5.5 million to be raised.

Have you noticed the little folk tale I have added to my page?
There is a terrible forest fire. All the animals are fleeing the conflagration except hummingbird, who is flying back and forth, scooping up little slivers of water from a spring and dumping them on the flames. "What do you think you're doing, stupid little bird?" the other animals ask derisively, and Hummingbird says, "I'm doing what I can."

by Wangari Maathai

I'm trying to be mindful of this.
