Our open house, for work, was tonight. We had about 200 people come and go in the three and a half hour block. It was a grand time. People visited, ate, and drank. And, people needed to store their coats. We have a coat closet in our new space. Yea! It’s not huge, but it’s up front, and we even have hangers. We only have, though, 16 hangers. 16 hangers that I bought our first week in the space. I manned the door for the first hour and half, left to get Levi, and returned with an hour left. While I was there, we never ran out of room in that closet. Every time I looked in, there were barely any hangers left. But, every time I directed someone to the closet, there was magically another hanger available for use.

The miracle of the magic closet. It’s like a modern-day version of the loaves and fishes, without the punch of … you know … feeding people.

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
