“What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be.”
This was where I spent my second day on the new job; the Kentucky Historical Society’s Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in Frankfort. We attended a “workday” sponsored by the Kentucky Oral History Commission on problematic legal issues of release forms and various other documents. The nerd in me found it very informative, and not at all unlike many of the issues I’ve dealt with in other collections, or even my own photography. I probably should have studied intellectual property law; I’m that much of a nerd. Anyway, I knew it would be a good day as soon as the very cute, very gracious Eleanor Craig from the Loretto Heritage Center said she was new to the club. I wasn’t alone. I also wasn’t wrong about the day. It was a wonderful way to meet new friends. It didn’t hurt that I rode to and from the event with one very hilarious old friend and colleague Reinette Jones. Yes, I could really like this job!
