Good Morning from Prince Edward Island, 

Here we are finishing week 43 2018 already, hard to believe. 

Something to think about...

Libraries

It is great to see the notion of a new library and learning centre for Charlottetown discussed, the story here.

I have not seen the plans for the repurposed space and may well be speaking out of line but I wish it was a more inspiring vision that is being proposed. 

Libraries meet community cultural needs on so many levels.

They ought to be spaces created to inspire others to dream while allowing the creative spirit to soar.  

I feel a library building should be architecturally inspiring. I hope the plans are that. 

If you’re to create something powerful and important, you must at the very least be driven by an equally powerful inner force. ~ Ryan Holiday

When we travel we like to visit local libraries. Take a look at these libraries. 

Canada's Smallest Library is even inspiring. Take a peek here. 

Old Friends

This summer I saw a few friends from years ago, and it was great to see them do the "catch up" on lives lived, and this article What I Learned About Life at My 30th College Reunion by Deborah Copaken reminded me the conversations had. Interesting read here.

Flu Season

This week I noticed signage at most pharmacies promoting free flu shots and as one who has never taken a flu shot had me wondering if I should. I am still doing my research on the pros and cons and found this article, Why did the Flu Kill 80,000 Americans Last Year. Read it here. 

Christmas is Coming

October 19, 2008, I accepted the real reason for the season. This week I read, Why I was Wrong About Christianity by Tom Holland. I find the article interesting, but no means the basis for my faith. Let's say the Greeks philosophers and Roman's had influence on today, but none came near the impact a little guy named Paul. Read here. 

To Your Health 

I had mentioned in last weeks blog my desire to look after my health more proactively. Hence I am reading more about what one can do to slow down the rate of decline one experiences while ageing. It can as little as 10 minutes a day. Read Here.  Which brings me to...

Are You a Procrastinator...I can be.

You will like this, I did. Read Rewire your brain to beat procrastination.

I hope you have enjoyed today's read, lots to think about. 

This week, I have been listening to a lot to Ragna Schirmer's album Handel: Keyboard Suites. It has become my go-to for background music. Listen Here. 

Quote, I am pondering: 

Spirituality is a fundamental part of human personhood. Everyone has a spirituality, whether they think of themselves as spiritual or not. The difference between people is how attentive they are to spiritual yearnings, how they respond to these yearnings, and whether or not their response is life-giving. ~ David G. Benner PhD

Take care of yourselves and have a wonderful weekend. 

With love from Prince Edward Island.

Ps. An elderly woman called 911 on her cell phone to report her car was broken into. She was hysterical as she explained, "They stole the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal, even the accelerator!" A few minutes later the officer radioed in: "Disregard, she got into the back seat by mistake."
