Pandemic by Lynn Ungar 3/11/20

What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider the Sabbath—
the most sacred of times?
Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling.
Give up, just for now,
on trying to make the world
different than it is.
Sing. Pray. Touch only those
to whom you commit your life.
Center down.
 
And when your body has become still,
reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.
(You could hardly deny it now.)
Know that our lives
are in one another’s hands.
(Surely, that has come clear.)
Do not reach out your hands.
Reach out your heart.
Reach out your words.
Reach out all the tendrils
of compassion that move, invisibly,
where we cannot touch.
 
Promise this world your love–
for better or for worse,
in sickness and in health,
so long as we all shall live.

Teddy Bear Sleepover at the library on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 6 pm

Come to the Lanesboro Public Library for a night of cuddly fun! Kids (ages 3 and up), their stuffed friends and their families are invited to a special story time. Before leaving the library, kids tuck their stuffed friends into teddy-bear sized sleeping bags provided just for this event. Friends of Lanesboro Library volunteers will chaperone the teddy bears and take photos to share with kids the next day when they pick up their stuffed friends. Sign up at the library to participate.
