Serendipity has long been a meaningful concept for me. I love the randomness and relevance of events, people, and things coming together, often in the absence of planning.
So many wonderful and momentous happenings in my Woodson Art Museum life and in my personal life speak to serendipity.
Akin to serendipity is knowing – a gut kind of knowing – when something is meant to be, when the timing is just right.
The time is right for me to retire.
Today’s Woodson Wanderings blog post is my last and the last of 2022. Serendipitous.
For more than two decades, I’ve been privileged to lead the Woodson Art Museum, nurturing – and learning from – remarkable and talented co-workers, and benefiting from enthusiastic, engaging, and generous members and visitors from around the world and all walks of life. Every day has been a gift, filled with new experiences.
My heart is full; my gratitude is boundless.
As I take leave, I celebrate the Woodson Art Museum’s many successes and ask all to embrace the inevitable and positive changes that will take place. In the spirit of the Museum’s Founding Families, fill your hearts and minds with the beauty and thoughtfulness that the arts can bring to your life.
I’ll be cheering from the sidelines.
