I had a nice talk with Sister Morgan this weekend--one of those talks where you can't remember too much of what you talked about afterwards, but you feel refreshed. We talked of Kristen and Kirsten and Julie and Danny--it's like we all started out in this circle at the Writing Center then set our faces away from school and moved the circle outward going our own ways; soon we won't be able to see each other any more because we'll be too far apart. But I talked to Meagan and Chandler too--he looks too skinny, so donate more to the pizza fund, all you current assistants, and give that man some food!
Anyway, speaking of giving, here is what I learned at the conference I went to at BYU-I, or at least the one line I will remember when I've forgotten everything else. Marion Romney said, "How can we give if there is nothing there?" Sitting here now in Writing Center mode, I think of Leanna and Dan and well, mostly myself, stuck with too many emotions that I can't find essays for but finding that this line covers many of them.
