Currently doing:

A view of Cygnoir's home in Second Life. The now of April 2020 - I missed a couple of months of “what I’m doing now” posts. I bet you can guess why.

  • Today I will go into the library to do my work for the first time in months. This is a concrete step in the planning we are all doing to reimagine how we serve our community. I am excited! And a little nervous. I did not sleep well last night.
  • 📚 Currently Reading: So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo Yesterday, as I obsessively watched the news, my hold on this library ebook was finally ready. It is a challenging and necessary read. I am learning so much.
