Misplaced Book

Image result for card catalog

Checked my offices at work and at home. Scrutinized every shelf within my control, including the metal mobile bookcases my wife and I put in my daughter's old room; shelves that produce groans and rolled eyes every time my daughter visits.

Nothing.

I refuse to think that I could have given the book away. It is small. I bought it in London years ago. It is about a narrow political topic. 

Maddening.

I need a card catalog.

I'll remove your name from the list of suspects.

Of course, if you had all your books in digital format, all you would have to do is run a global search with Windows Explorer or Google. Just sayin'.

Rick,

As a poet, you should appreciate the beauty of using cards.

As a great poet once said: "A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day." No word dies on the Internet. Cards and paper decompose, are burned or lost. Nothing dies on the Internet.

Rick,

True, cards and paper must be maintained but the process of doing so renews the dedication to knowledge. That's why libraries are temples and the librarians are priests.
