Improvement

Human progress is analogous to a constant fight. For every fallen assumption there is a step forward.

Librarian no chronist

“What’s being a librarian like?” I asked.

“What’s being a chronist like?”

“I don’t understand.” It was true.

“Neither me. Let’s leave that for a moment. You want to know what is like to be a librarian?”

“Yup.” I nodded.

“Think about a reader who, after gaining certain knowledge regarding the relationship between book, author and reader, decides to help other readers to understand the same.”

I tried to figure out what he meant.

“By your words, should I conclude that being a librarian is like another stage from being a reader?”

“Exactly. Think about a reader who, after a long time reading, finds himself in a crossroad with three paths before him to follow.”

My eyes imagined the landscape as the librarian’s voice described it. Any day, any time, anywhere. I stood there. I stood there. I will stand there. And I saw it.

“Author, reader, librarian.” Those were the three routes spreading out from the crossroad. “After a long time reading books I can become an author myself, my words the light bulbs waiting for other people to turn them on, I can become a librarian, my advice helping people make the right choice, or I can keep being a reader, travelling through the authors’ minds and meeting them for brief conversations.” Any day, any time, anywhere.
