Mug full of love.
I had lunch today with Alison Trybom-Lucas, the Chief of Staff for the Arts Division at UC Santa Cruz. We talked about our next steps together. She brought me a mug with valentine hearts on it and a hand cream that she especially likes. The card was in the shape of a record album, and I thought THAT was really cool, too. As is my habit, I sat down to thank her before I sip out of the mug or rub any cream on my body! I realized later how much effort was involved in HAND CARRYING a breakable mug down here. Not an easy task to thwart TSA anymore… but she managed to get it here in one piece, and I took a second to acknowledge her for that Herculean task!
