The Tiger and Lion May Be More Powerful…

February 14, 2016

…but the wolf does not perform in the circus.

In 3 hours (EST) I will be closer to 60 than 50 and so, predictably, trite aphorisms like the headline for this post seem to resonate.  My patience for meetings, office politics, and short-sighted non-fixes for endemic issues in museums and academe is at an all time low.  As a part-time museum employee and adjunct faculty at two research universities I have no credible standing in either world.  Full-time employment is the measure of worth in the museum world and tenure in the Ivory Tower, my own sense of professional worth is these days measured in friends made, experiences accumulated, words written, and mentoring opportunities.  It’s snowy and cold outside.  The future is mine to make what I will of it.  And so tonight I howl.
