Lusciousness for My Mouth and History for My Ears

Yum...There is nothing like having lusciousness for my mouth while my ears are filled with history.

The NAGARA/CoSA Conference is drawing to a close here in Santa Fe. There is so much I have learned thus far, but there is still one more day. When I was leaving, Steve Grandin who works in the NAGARA National Office told me “today was a good day for you ha?” I laughed kinda hard and said “it was!” He said that because two good things happened to me during the Keynote Luncheon. There is nothing like having lusciousness for my mouth while my ears are filled with history. My ears were also treated to an awesome compliment in front of a room of at least 150 professionals. The Keynote Speaker for the luncheon was Dr. Richard Melzer. I have posted about Dr. Melzer here before as I have known him for many years. There have been several occasions when I have listened to him speak, but he has never given me a public compliment. He said he was going to “put me on the spot,” when he said “historians couldn’t do what they do without the help of archivists.” I was honored when he told the audience that I was “his favorite archivist.” Very cool… Not only is Dr. Melzer highly respected by scholars, but he has researched in institutions and repositories all over the world. That wasn’t all. Wow!! I actually won a door prize! What the???? I never win anything- Haha πŸ™‚ I guess Steve was right- it was a good day.

    You know, being an archivist sounds like a lot of fun. Could almost feel the excitement of it all coming through this post. It’s nice to read from someone who truly enjoys what they do.
