Yesterday I went to the bank to handle a transaction that I couldn’t do using the ATM or online. Goodness, the measures being taken to meet people face to face is startling, but necessary during “Covid” times. As I passed cubicle offices, I noticed that plexiglass walls have been attached to the front of each desk protecting customers and bank representatives from each other. Hmmm… maybe those clear bubble umbrellas aren’t such a bad idea.
On the way home, I stopped to look at the local library’s Poetry Garden. Poems are “planted” into the ground and passersby are invited to pick a poem to plant at home – or plant one of their own. The library even has an online map of planted poetry around the city. Remember “Twinkle, twinkle, little star…”? I never knew “The Star” (a 19th century lullaby) written by English author Jane Taylor, had five verses. And Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote the melody!
