Striving to Understand

What happened at the Pulse Club in Orlando on June 12 was a tragedy. 49 people were killed, and 53 more were injured. There are not words to express the horror of this event. But words seem to be called for, and words are definitely being used. As soon as this news was released, conversations started on social media, in homes, in coffee shops. There is hurt. There is pain. There is anger. There is misunderstanding.

I often feel helpless in the face of tragedy. I worry about what my response should be. Do I have a duty to respond publicly? Do I even have a right?

Kitchen Table, Anyone?

No one is making me write about our Community Conversations this month, but I have to tell you, I was totally surprised and impressed with the dynamic and heartfelt experience we had last week holding a Community Conversation with our own Poulsbo library staff. I was so moved by the authenticity of the things that were expressed there, as staff “took off their work hats” and spoke from the heart, as people who live here and care deeply about their neighbors, their town, their farm.

What I'm reading this month

Honestly, it can be difficult for me to think of a topic to blog about every month. I cannot imagine how professional bloggers do it everyday or even several times a week. So, on a hunt for something even remotely interesting to share, I went out to the desk to pay my fines <blush> and stumbled upon a pile of holds. There were three wonderful titles that I had been waiting for, so I thought I would share them with you here.

Presidential elections: the primary edition

Presidential elections are such interesting things.  So many nuances. The combination of federal, state, and county rules can be confusing.  With presidential hopefuls visiting our state, and the Democratic party's caucus next week, I wanted to share some resources I've found that can help give further information if you're interested in learning more about the election process.
