The aged librarian still keeps the ancient typewriter he bought from his uncle when he had ambitions of becoming an author.
“I must study the masters”, he said.
But the more he had read the more he was humbled.
“My writing will never be art… then let it be fact.”
He studied history, science, and law. but the more he read the more he saw the knowledge he lacked.
He sits by his desk, caressing the keyboard and musing:
“By reading I’ve learned… I never will know how to write… but that is more than most authors ever will know”
So here is another story with my aged librarian. He is a person that knows everything about social distancing. So he will be safe in the current situation. But once he had dreams to create instead of living the dreams of others.
