My Year of the Monkey

IMG_0274.jpg  I am the seasoned traveler

Of the Labyrinth.

The genius of alacrity,

Wizard of the impossible.

My brilliance is yet unmatched

In it’s originality.

My heart’s filled with potent magic

That could cast a hundred spells.

I am put together

For mine own pleasure

I am the Monkey

(The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes by Theodora Lau)

As the days slowly get longer and longer and winter season drags to an end books we have read are easily sold on Amazon or set out in a box by the front walkway for passersby to pick through.  I do see more free library mini houses around.  One of my goals this summer is to build one for my own front yard close to the walkway so can pass my books on all year instead of rescuing them from the weather daily.  I think I want mine to be a Narrowboat or a Mississippi river boat.
