Winter's Bleak End


We felt Winter's last breath doing Bookwagon this morning. A cold, misty snow and a raw North wind. Numbers were down, as is usual for this time of year. Only a couple of dozen kids borrowed. (Half of them boys: the neighbourhood continues to resist the university clamour about boys choosing to not read.)

This always feels like the end of the year for us. I think our morale sinks a little as well, so I chose to treat my teammates to a hot lunch. We got to talk a little, complain a little, dream a little. Share our hopes for the up-coming Storytent season just nine weeks away.
