Working in the library at Biola U

The following is a note I wrote to Carolyn, explained an embarrassing moment in the Library at BU.

Hey Carolyn – here’s a laugh.

I managed to get a guest pass, and settle in to the one Carousel I found open long the perimeter of the large library hall… I plugged in, logged in as a guest to the WIFI, put on my headset, tuned by browser in to my Pandora account… My Mozart station.

Soon the music started playing, and I got my programs fired up and got to work. A few minutes later, a pleasant looking co-ed approached, smiled, and pointed to my MacBook. I was perplexed.

Then she reached over, and pushed my headphone jack the rest of the way in… And that’s when I figured it out. Unwittingly, I provided a sound track for the entire library. Thankfully, it was Mozart. I thought I had heard the music through my headphones. But no. The speakers filled the entire room with rich sound. Not everyone appreciated the intrusion.

Turning a little red, I looked up, high fived the young woman. She smiled in return. Then, I looked around the room. Just about everyone was looking my way. I waved apologetically. Most everyone smiled in gratitude, not for me, but the student who returned the room to a quiet study mode. She went back to her seat and her books.

We all got back to work.

PS I’m guessing she explained to her study mate, “Apparently the old guy is technically challenged and probably hard of hearing.”

Musings on Creativity

Leave a comment

I logged in to Starbuck’s WIFI as I waited for a friend.  The log-in web site popped up, offering me a video under the title “Nurturing Creativity.”  I couldn’t help myself.  I clicked the play button.  You may know more about Elizabeth Gilbert than I do.  But I was drawn in to her talk… and could not stop.  Her insights are well worth the listen.

Check it out.
