When this job gets really tedious, when the grind threatens to burn me out, it’s then that I’m often reminded of how lucky I am – how blessed I’ve been to meet people of greatness.
One of the true legends in this town – a person I’d point my kids to and say “that’s a great person, consider her a role model in living life to its fullest” – is Carolyn Hill.
In relatively short period of time, she led the Oklahoma City Museum of Art from a floundering mess to a source of pride for the entire region. I have a story set for this Sunday about her retirement, and here is just one quote that reflects Carolyn’s brilliance:
“It takes a lot of energy to dream. You have to analyze it, you have to fall in love with it. And that takes a lot of energy and strength.”
