Inspiration

Confronted earlier this week with wet volumes at a local synagogue, this picture was how I remembered what to do:

That’s Philosophy professor Radoslav Tsanoff sliding pieces of dry paper between the wet pages of a book in the aftermath of the dramatic 1966 library flood. Until this week I couldn’t account for his joyful countenance in what was a disastrous circumstance but now I believe I understand.

Bonus: I don’t like the look of this. At all. There were no people anywhere around and it looked as if they’d begun assembling on their own.

    Dr. Tsanoff was probably the only one in a coat and tie. The rest of us had on cutoffs and old tennis shoes.
