…of this place:


And these books:



On Tuesday, I went inside the Waseca-Le Sueur Public Library for the first time in years. It’s been updated since I was a little kid (as one would hope!), but I still felt the same excitement as I did when I was a kid browsing books in the stacks.

To see books like this one I had checked out more than 30 years ago — so fun.


I have no doubt that I’m a writer because of that place.
