At times this is done intentionally, but mostly it slips through the cracks. It is the words or actions that aren’t written down. It’s the modesty that is nice to experience in a time that can be filled with overbearing “me-ness”. It’s being focused outside of ourselves.
Caricatures of each of us visiting commissioners was drawn by staff at La Pintoresca Branch Library. No signature – so no credit given where credit due. Oh, did I mention I happen to be Library Commission Chair? See what I mean?
I do the same thing when I respond to emails. But a change will take place today. From here on out, or until I change my mind, I’m going to highlight what I’ve written, where you can read my writing, and the like.
