“Sometimes you have to let go of the picture of what you thought it would be like and learn to find joy in the story you are actually living.” ~ TinyBuddha
Even though I work in oral history, I don’t have time to do many interviews (that’s not what I was hired to do anyway), but on occasion, I’m able to carve out a little time and spend some of it hearing someone’s story. Today I was privileged to sit down with friend and colleague Gail Kennedy. You’ve met Gail many times. What you might not know is that she gave 47 years of service to the UK Libraries and accumulated a unique perspective on the profession and the library system along the way. Plus, she has an incredibly moving personal story. As always, I enjoyed our time together. I’ve never been in her company that I didn’t learn something new and leave feeling inspired. I think she had a good time, too.
