The thing about the library is that it makes me think about time.
I went in to pick up a book I had on hold [Thursday Next: First Among Sequels], and as I left, book in hand, thinking about the time this book and I would get to spend together, I glanced down at my check out slip. At the bottom it read, "DUE DATE: 06-08-09".
By the time this book is due it was already be June.
By the time this book is due I will have moved away from Santa Cruz OVER a year ago.
By the time this book is due Heather could have had Collin.
Time certainly does fly....
