Focus On: Who we are.

Answering the question we spend our whole lives trying to figure out.


This week, the prompt sent out by Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime asked us to fill in with a photograph the blank in this sentence,"You are __________________."

Hmm. Having been around for 58 years, I think I must be a lot of things. 

But I decided to keep it simple. My profession is Librarian. I help people find information, and try not to judge or censor. 

So when asked to complete that phrase, I chose this, inscribed on my well worn tote bag by the folks at unshelved.com.  


I turned to my camera's trusty timer for this, and almost ran out of battery...I might have gotten a better shot had I not been in a hurry. But this will have to do! 

Visit with the others who are exploring their identities this week at The Studio Sublime.

  2. Oh, I love that phrase - perfect! Like Mary, I will have to share this with our wonderful librarians (at school and at the public library). That's a wonderful profession to have: helping people widen their horizons! (I hear you on the judgement / censorship :) )
