Traveling scarf

I felt honored to be able to help the scarf begin its travels by wearing it around the Libraries yesterday. My family was the first to notice the scarf, as I do wear scarves quite often. My daughter thought I had bought a new one. When I explained that I was participating in a traveling scarf event, she had mixed feelings about sharing the scarf with others. I believe lice was her biggest concern, but then again, she is only 8.

I had a few meetings yesterday and also visited several people on different floors of the Libraries for my current project. I was surprised that only one person commented on the scarf the entire day, which happened to be one of my student workers. I did take the time to explain The Sisterhood of the Traveling Scarf, but she just nodded her head and smiled, returning to her work. I guess I did not have the impact on my surroundings that I had hoped, but I was still proud to wear the scarf and happy to be a part of a wonderful group of women. I look forward to reading the blog entries of the scarf's travels and the women who will wear it.
