Phoenix, Arizona
Summer 2007

They say that when one door closes, another one opens. I certainly
understood the first part of that axiom, as I had just shut a major
door in my life. After working for the past thirty-plus years as a
museum professional, most recently eighteen years as director of education
at the Phoenix Art Museum, I decided to retire, or at least
switch gears from full-time employment to figuring out what I wanted
to be when I grew up. I didn’t realize that trying to reinvent one’s
identity after so many years of owning one job title would be as challenging
as it turned out to be, and when it came to finding another
door to open, it seemed like there were just too many closed doors in
front of me.
