Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, ‘
Holy sh#t, what a ride!
~ Hunter S. Thompson


A few days ago I had the privilege of photographing one of our library events. Many of my co-workers attended including Reinette Jones and Megan Mummey. I was primarily focused on the five guest speakers and some of the audience members, but I was instantly taken by this image. The beautiful reflection aside, I was struck by how these women are so different from each other in many respects, and at the same time, incredibly similar. I think that’s true of most of us if we stop long enough to consider the possibilities. No matter how different or similar they are, the honor of knowing and working alongside Reinette and Megan is all mine. They make it a pleasure to go to work every day. What a ride!
