Ojai’s Best Library

August 25, 2014

Kratona Library ~ for SaraI spent time at the Kratona Library in Ojai studying my new non-religion—theosophy.  My daughter Haley (pictured above), a Cal-grad, joined me to visit this well-stocked library, which was built in 1924 and houses rare, out-of-print books focusing on the esoteric branches of knowledge such as alchemy, astrology, and mysticism. In my opinion, the Kratona Library invented and now owns “New Age.”  Sometimes we have to get out of the digital world and smell the scent of books.  Often I would simply sit in the library while looking out from the floor-to-ceiling picture window at the Heritage Oak tree and rose garden, absorbing the teachings without ever opening a book. Does anyone remember the osmosis joke from college days?  I’m just soaking it in, osmosis-style.
