“If you want to soar in life, you must learn to F.L.Y. (first love yourself).” ~ Mark Sterling
I made a great new friend this week. Dr. Paul Goldsbrough, from Canberra, Australia, was in Kentucky for a jazz workshop. When he’s not playing a mean jazz guitar, he’s lecturing in physics, but neither interest brought him to the Nunn Center. He came to us to immerse himself in archives, and immerse himself he did. We – all of us in the Nunn Center and a few others like our records archivist Ginny Daley – had a week chock full of great conversations with Paul. He was simply delightful; engaged, engaging, interested in everything, funny, witty, and smart as a whip. He’ll go back to Australia and build the archive he has been tasked to build, and I have no doubt it will be a brilliant beast that generations will use and deeply appreciate. That we got a friend out of the deal was a real bonus. It’s weeks like this that make me love what I do.
