Put this on Welch FB page, but it deserves a spot here too.

Plant lover? Tree lover? If you haven't been to Cylburn you're missing one of the city's little hideaways. (I feel like I'm walking through a Jane Austen movie). And  their official market day is this coming Saturday. It'll be a little less hectic than the Flowermart, but the flowers may be more addictive. They practically sing your name out, like unadopted pets giving you 'the look'. Take me home! Pleeeeeeeeze.

Throw away the Chee-tos! Toss out dem double-stuffed Oreos! I'm talkin to you---you who wouldn't know a vegetable if it was growing on your face----the jig is up. The Farmer's Market is back. Here's what you do. Don't just MEANDER about, stop and smell stuff. Smell it like you were right there when it came out of the ground. Smell it like you're having a religious experience (like they do at Whole Foods).Act like you know the history of the Earth. Impress those other righteous market goers. Say something like "I had these last year from Delaware." And when you're out there on a Sunday morning, by all means---especially if you're a woman---wear something ugly. Break out your inner EarthMother. The ugly long skirt your grandmaw gave you from Woodstock, the smelly Birkenstocks, and that ratty gypsy top., And if you're a man, push that bay-bay carriage and act like you care for goodness sake. We know it wasn't your idea for Sunday morning, but gosh darn it, play the part big daddy. And when the crowd gets too much, and you've seen one more person you didn't feel like talking to about nothing---get yourself some fresh hot donuts, inhale some bliss and think about all your fresh carrots. Adulthood just paid you a house call.

Stumbled across this article from the first person POV regarding an embedded librarian. It caught my eye because it's a straightforward look at the daily academic strategy the author adheres to. "Embedded Journalists" has become a phrase we've incorporated into our daily vocabulary. "Embedded librarian" also seems to have found it's place in our collective vocab lexicon.

We've all been there. Summer arrives. Temperatures go wicky-wacky. You get overheated. And suddenly you're babysitting your nieces and nephews and you absolutely don't want to take them to THE MALL, and you absolutely don't want to plop them down in front of VIDEO GAMES (at least not for more than 6 hrs. at a time :-). So what do you do? I have to say that I've had tremendous luck at the library, and I've been to the Baltimore County Public Library on several occasions. The wee-ones need not be stationed around alotta "white noise" (see, Delillo, Don). Take them to a library for a little cool down. Maybe they discover a book, maybe they discover something else---or maybe you introduce them to----ambiance. Afterwards, gulp down that jumbo latte with the x-tra whip, you've earned it, my friend.

Since so many people love the Farmer's Market and never seem to know when they officially start (like me)....

I've probably mentioned Evergreen before---if not---now's a great time (wonderful weather) to take a Sunday morning and peruse the grounds and the library. The installations all seem appropriately abstract, so this allows for you to stroll around them in a perpetual state of "hmmmmmmmmm, I wonder what that says". I've been to the Evergreen Library and it has it's own degree of rapture, starting with some original Audobon prints.

Guilty! Guilty! Sentimentality put a mojo on me! In the link below, there's nothing library-related. Not an inch, not a pinch, not one stinkin IOTA. But, all the human interest goodies in Herbert's story just had to be passed along. Maybe you've already read about it. If not---it's very touching. Call me corny. Call me old-fashioned. But I read the article and all those warm fuzzies just attacked me out of nowhere.,0,5951334,full.story
