I changed the subtitle to allow me to broaden the content and still stay within my purpose:  Primarily to dig a well in Oltorotua and also to write generally about the Maasai and their home in the Mara.  Today, however, is a Musings day, and I want to talk about a Polish librarian named Tedeusz Glowinski, Teddy, and his granddaughter Daria.

About a year ago I received an e-mail from a retired teacher turned librarian who was setting up his own lending library in Olesnica, Poland.  He asked me to donate several of my books.  Since writers buy their own books from the publisher, we must choose carefully to whom to donate books.  But I sent a few books to him.

Yesterday he sent me a photo of his gorgeous granddaughter Daria Drozd reading one of my books.  He wrote: “On this map there are places-countries from where I have books for my library
or illustrations for “Gallery of World’s Illustrations” at GLOWINSKIS’ LIBRARY.
There are 88 countries !!! I dream about more and more …
That map is in my flat, in my library there is too little place!”

I got permission to post the photo.  Please check out Teddy’s website (be sure to click the flag in the upper right for English or whatever your language of choice is) and, if you are a writer or illustrator, I know he would love to have a contribution and mark your location on his map.

    Neat! Reminds me of a word hunt, I think it was, way back when I student taught. I can’t remember details, but it involved posting on a world map. I have forwarded to a writer we know.
