“And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.” ~ William Shakespeare
Stacey Greenwell, above center, used to be the only Stacey in the library. Suddenly – boom – there were three: Stacy Yelton, left, and Stacie Williams, right. You can say the name and all three will answer, but be careful how you spell it. Special Collections had a happy hour dinner for newbies Jaime Bradley, Stacy Yelton, and myself. For the first time the S Trinity converged, and behold, the world was made better.
Before supper comes lunch of course, and today I had the pleasure of dining with Mary Molinaro as part of the long goodbye to my old job. We talked a little about work, but we talked a lot about crazy neighbors, quarries, and aging parents. Mary and I share a lot in common actually. Our birthdays are not even a week apart, we’re both only children, and we both have backgrounds in the arts. Come next Thursday, after six years, Mary will no longer be my boss. We’ve been through good times and bad. She has taught me a lot about forgiveness. We will always be friends, and I wish her every happiness this life has to offer. Lunch and dinner with awesome people. Guess who had another best day evah? That’s right: me! Two in a row, and boy am I grateful.
