There are now others who are as invested in saving books as I am. These individuals include Pete who, without complaining, gives me an assist with just about everything; Milena, who seems to thrive on logistical challenges; Bill, who salvages and distributes books; and as well builds bookcases; Nan, who does a bit of everything; and Bea who is always willing to lend her editorial expertise.
This is an amazing assemblage of people, and I need to keep this in mind if I want to remain whelmed.
There are also going to be more individuals giving an assist in the near future – I just have to figure out how to delegate the various tasks. The thought of this puts me in the overwhelmed category.
Yes, I came to this realization today. I have not yet internalized it. But just considering it did make me more productive and feeling less paralytic, which has been my state of being the past few days.
I went to town after getting Tinni and Hrimmi out. As I was driving down the Glenn Highway, I came up behind a line of cars moving slowly. I peered out my windshield and saw, on my left, a young moose running down the road. The line of cars went more slowly as he began to tire. I really felt bad for the fellow – the berms are so high he had no place to go.
He finally slowed down, looked around, and considered another option, which was to do a 180 and head back in the direction he came.
I just wish the car right behind him had stopped at a side road, for then the moose might have taken a detour. Just an example here, of yet another really stupid human being.
This is what’s important – as this was going on, I was extremely calm. I was most definitely in a whelmed state.
It took a while, but once I finally got to the Meeting House, I grabbed some books for distribution. I parted company with three boxes books, then returned to the Meeting House where I cleaned the refrigerator.
I’m generally impatient in doing such tasks. But, being whelmed, it was not so onerous.
Something to strive for, being consistently whelmed.
