After tonight’s date with the streets of Ballard, I will be heading back to Broadview Library on this Saturday from 12-4. A few weeks ago, I took my project to Broadview on a Thursday night, already knowing that my non-weekend night library gigs were usually not well attended. I had just really wanted to get my project out of the center, south end or west seattle, so I took the Thursday and this later Saturday date. And since most of the meeting rooms in the new libraries are amazing spaces filled with light, I just figured I’d get some work done by myself in a great room, and just spread the word for this next visit.
It was slim, but I did meet some wonderful people who detoured their evening plans to spend an hour or two with me. Just coming in to return books Chandra learned to crochet for the first time, while her sweet daughter and I played with the camera.
Pretending to be superheros and dressing up in the crocheting, unraveling yarn and touching it all, I am well versed in the joys of being four. Then Mary came in and quickly revisted crocheting from when she was a kid.
And all three became instant pals! Seriously!
High Fives and laughter for the whole time. Chandra just moved here from Georgia, and Mary and I were telling her about all the stunning parks all over the city to take her little one. Anyhow, Broadview here I come again.
