that there would be no motel rooms available on the Oregon coast. She then spent close to two hours on the phone, attempting to cancel her car rental. She was told this would cost her $25.00. They waived the fee when she expressed her indignation.
Once again, I discovered that over the weekend, three pallets of boxed books that I’d placed in one area had been moved to various other areas. It took me most of the workday to find them and get them situated and organized in another area.
I expressed my indignation to the one who moved them. I did not get a $25.00 refund. I instead got reprimanded for working so hard.
It took me some time, that is all last night and a part of today, to come to terms with this. What I realized is that I need to be flexible, particularly in light of the virus concerns. This means that for now, I need to let go of the Bright Light Book Project and direct my focus elsewhere, which as I indicated in the above few paragraphs, is what I did and am going to continue to do.
Easier said than done. I know that right now, distribution is key – it would be in everyone’s best interest to get boxes of books to people who can’t leave their homes. We could find out what genres they’re interested in, fill their order and then put the boxes on their doorsteps. This is a brilliant idea. All it would take would be time and money for gas.
Ahh, but perhaps getting the recycling book done is just as important. And now might be the time. When opportunities arise, we need to seize them. I have come to a fork in the road and must take what I see as being the correct path.
