Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. -- Mark Twain
Worked a 10 hour day today, 11 hours if you count my "working" lunch. I was in Bowling Green, Ohio (not Kentucky!) meeting with the guy who helps facilitate our website; I'd set up the appointment to get a better sense of how to use/utilize/change our website, and left with him redesigning the whole website. He was so excited when I told him I didn't like it and would redo it if I could that I think he nearly fell out of his chair--apparently finds it boring too! Our website is old school and uninteresting, and like many other things here in Sticks Library, I want to give it the once over with some fresh, young eyes; I want some change. Excited to hear from our website guy; excited to see what we create! Being a director can be so much fun!
Every time we try to identify God, we are sure to identify what he is —
what she is certainly not. And the genius of God to dwell where we would
least likely look, within the depths of our own being, our own
shallowness, our own darkness, our own humanity. --Martin Sheen
My friend Pamerama was kind enough to share this great, On Being, podcast interview of Martin Sheen. I chose to read the podcast interview transcript instead, to I might better process Sheen's statements.
I too am Catholic, but you don't need to be to enjoy. Sheen examines his return journey to faith and spirituality, and it's just wonderful.
A great read before New Years revelry.
Happiest New Years' Eve to you and yours! Be safe, be merry, be young tonight!
If you need to be reminded why you became a Librarian, or why libraries are amazing places, and still so relevant in the 21st century, watch this and be inspired.
