The old fashioned one!
Take a deep breath… you can probably summon the mysterious, dusty scent of books. Old ones. Shiny, new ones.
Picture books. Fairy tales. Encyclopedias. Mystery novels. And, in my case, lots of books about dogs and horses!
Mom took us to the library when we were small. I suspect it was a combination of loneliness in perpetual new neighborhoods and the fact that she thought she should read to us.
She did, a lot. Mostly when my dad was away on business, which was also a lot.
I’m glad she did. And I loved the library!
It felt safe and exciting to me. And it probably felt sacred, too, though I didn’t know that word back then.
Signing up for Medicine Basket your way… unsticking stuck ___________________ stuff will probably feel a lot like an early trip to the library.
And, like the library, Natalie Moyes and I have planned for variety!
From contextual challenges like the Covidian Era to money stuff and body stuff and relationship stuff, there are lots of things to check out and explore.
Lots of tools, too. Like reading!
Also symbols and filters and a bit of ink – perhaps red like the thread – for editing some things that aren’t working as well as you’d like. (Shoulds are a good example of such things…)
Experiences, really, to soak in and claim as your own.
I know… there’s a lot of flap about libraries and books these days. And a whole lot of yapping from people who want to choose for you.
Medicine Basket is like libraries and books. Filled, not simply with information, but with new questions. Questions that can make a whole lot of difference. Especially in a place that most of us weren’t ready for.
Here’s our promise…
YOU get to choose what to check out. What to keep. What to return for someone else.
YOU get to choose which tools are crooking their fingers at you and offering to head out with you, handy in your basket, on the road to the place you want to be.
There is a bit of simple packing for you to do. The list is waiting, just on the other side of the big link. Along with the magic sign-up button.
And we promise that no one will make you stand up in the Book-Mobile and read a couple paragraphs of Tom Sawyer out loud in front of all the other kids. We already know you belong and you’ve got this!
ps… yes, the rumor is true. The elves are busy with surprise bonuses!
pps… Luther and Phoebe can’t wait to meet you and are resting up in the library! Phoebe wants you to know Luther is hogging the dog bed!
