I like audiobooks.
I’m a proud audiobook nerd.🤓 I can be found wandering the aisles of audiobooks at @schlowlibrary from time to time.
Sure, there’s @overdrive_libs, which I’d JUST started using last week to listen to a book when I’m not driving, but I much prefer audiobook CD’s for my car. I don’t know why. Like CD’s themselves, I like having something in my hands. Maybe I’m weird.
My little @hyundaiusa Accent has an auxiliary port so I can plug in a Bluetooth receiver and then connect my phone, but for some reason, the sound quality isn’t as good as when I play the CD’s.
Anyway, Schlow has a pretty great selection. And if they don’t, you can simply request a copy thru the Interlibrary Loan Program, so you have a huge selection available to you.
So in the stairwell between the first and second floors stands a beautiful sculpture by area artist @markpilato. I see it each and every time, but I don’t always stop to take it in. And I did just that yesterday afternoon.
❤️❤️💛💛💚💚 Regrann from @gillieandmarcart - WE ARE BEGGING YOU TO SIGN THIS PETITION. Sweet Sudan is dead, and now there are only two Northern White Rhinos left on this planet. We’re heartbroken and we’re also angry! Who has done this? Vietnam must be held accountable for driving the illegal rhino horn trade! 1300 rhinos are slaughtered every year in Africa for their horns, then smuggled by criminal gangs into Vietnam. We’ve launched a petition to put trade sanctions on Vietnam until they STOP rhino trafficking in their country! Please sign, and help us #stopextinction so Sudan’s life won’t be lost in vain.

I visited the Kenyatta international conference centre, Nairobi to see and shoot this sculpture. The Jomo Kenyatta statue is an 80-year-old British sculptor’s masterpiece by the name James Butler. It is a double life-size, 12-foot, seated statue of founding father and president, Jomo Kenyatta with every detailed aspect to a birthmark on the president’s face and his trademark peep toe sandals. The cast bronze statue was entirely made in England with every detail intact and was then shipped from England by container to Mombasa and was then driven by truck to Nairobi and installed in its current location. It has that quality of aging with grace, the bronze darkened and finely sculpted to the Founding father’s almost daunting resemblance. You need to see it to believe it. This was the sulptor's first major commission at the age of 38 and it took him 2 years to finish.
