CREATIVE SPARKS: SATURDAY SNAPSHOTS — REVISITING A SPECIAL PLACE — MARCH 9

163

 

Welcome to another creative opportunity to showcase photos, via our weekly Saturday Snapshot event, hosted by Alyce, At Home With Books.

Last weekend, I took a detour after returning Noah back to his mom.  I sauntered down a memory lane that led me back to the little suburban village of Clovis, CA, where my daughter now lives and where I lived back in the 1980’s…and I revisited the library.  As I entered those doors, I recalled the many happy times I’d had there.

And at the front door, I enjoyed some of the welcoming material.

And here’s another outside view.

The library was fairly new during the time I lived there.  Despite the passage of time, it still filled me with nostalgia.

What are the rest of you sharing today?  I hope to visit and chat with you.

    1. I felt a bit disoriented, since it had been many years since the time when this was “my library.” But it was great revisiting it. Thanks for stopping by, Louise, and enjoy your weekend.

    1. That’s always the first thing I do when I move to a new town, too…check out the library.

      I have found some of the best libraries in really small towns.

      Thanks for visiting, Deb, and enjoy your weekend.

    1. Oh, that sounds lovely, Paulita….my very first library shared half the building with the post office in a small country village. I still recall the scent…one that I suspect was more from the post office than the library. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. You’re welcome, Elizabeth…and thanks for returning the visit. I think that of all the places I’ve enjoyed, in the towns and cities where I’ve lived, the libraries are the most memorable.

    1. Thanks…I didn’t notice that about it when I lived there. And in my post, I probably should have added that this particular village is noted for its “cowboy” theme…and every year hosts a rodeo and an event called Big Hat Day. Glad you could stop by, Arti…enjoy your weekend.

    1. Oh, how sad that it was leveled…too bad they couldn’t sustain the integrity of the original while adding to it. But sometimes that’s not possible. Thanks for stopping by, Nise. Enjoy your weekend.

    1. It was a very cozy library that I enjoyed when I lived in that suburb…and now I may just have to revisit it more often…whenever I’m in that part of the city. Thanks for stopping by, Staci.
