You’ve seen bumper stickers that read “I’d rather be…”.  Yep. Twitter on Wheels.

 

Writing in public places is meant to be read.

 

 

I think a bumper sticker creates a relationship between the “writer car” and the “reader car”.   One of my all-time faves ~ “This Bumper Isn’t BIG ENOUGH For What I’ve Got to Say!”

 

 

 

Stick figure families were popular for a while. Not so much anymore.

 

 

I guess the writer car is saying I don’t care about your stick figure family to the reader car. So there.

But bumper stickers aren’t all raw-knuckled and razor-edged.  Case in point: Koren’s beasts.

 

 

 

I’m a stonking huge fan of his unreservedly brilliant animal cartoons.

 

And when I head up to the children’s room at the library, a entire constellation of critters cavort up the stairs.  Animals with books, a whimsically playful bunch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They all have a book or three.

My response to “I’d rather be…”?

 I’d rather be at the library.*

Going up?

    1. I get it, up north it’s cut, cut, cut the budget across the board. But I’m fortunate to spend winters in an area where there are scores of generous community-minded benefactors who make our libraries, art, and music venues top-notch and accessible to everyone. Toni

      1. Lucky you. Our libraries are all run by volunteers and although they do their best, they cannot open every day and not one evening for those who can’t manage a daytime visit. My sister lives in Gothenburg, Sweden, and when I go to visit, the Library is one of my favourite places to visit with its spacious rooms, desks for reading and note-taking, corners for children to read and be read to, art on the walls and in odd corners, coffee machines, restrooms and pleasant staff.

        1. I’m in the US, guessing you are not. Most Every community receives some funding from the local budget, usually minor, the rest is from fundraisers, fundraisers, and fundraisers. Letters that beg, plead, cajole. So far I am fortunate in having access to libraries with supportive local finance boards. But it’s getting tougher.
