In my everlasting need to anthropomorphize any animal I come in contact with, I wondered if he lives by the library because he wants to learn how to read. He might sit in the windows and look in at all the books, wondering if there is one in there that could teach him how to talk to humans.
Or maybe he finds humans mostly unimportant. He did not seem to be too scared of me, even staying still long enough for me to pull out my camera. City squirrels have to get used to noise and people if they are ever going to come out of their trees.
I feel a particular love for squirrels. It is probably due in part to all the Bob Ross I watched as a child, and even more to Poncho and Lefty, the two squirrels Thomas, Katarina and I raised. It was nice, even for just a minute, to connect with this library squirrel. I would be happy to sneak him into the library, if only he could promise me not to chew on the books.
