Executing today’s bag was a necessary evil.
I love books. I write books! But sometimes, books have to go into the trash because they have served our their sentence and need to be let go. Such it was today with a shopping bag full of textbooks. The library won’t take them and once the book has gone into its next edition, bookstores that buy back text books will not take them. Many of these were filled workbooks or already-used books. It’s not swell, but it’s O.K.
I heard today that one of my musical score recipients received the boxes I shipped to him. That made me happy – and it is, after all, International Happy Day. Life’s too short not to be happy.
Starting next week, I’m going to start walking over the 59th Street Bridge on my way home. Walking makes me really happy.
