I had a chance to reflect on just how much I have changed when I visited my college alma mater recently. One of the activities as I visited Utah with our church youth group, was to spend a day at BYU in Provo, Utah. I had a little bit of time to walk around the campus. It certainly does not look the same as it did when I went there! You see, I got a little lost.
As I walked down memory lane, I decided to go visit the old Harold B. Lee Library--a place where I hung out for many years. I would sit and socialize, nap, and study a bit every day on the 4th floor. That's where all us cool, hip and trendy kids would meet, wearing our puka shells, of course! So, for old time's sake, I decided to go back and visit the old 4th floor at the library. This is what it looked like when I went there: I went in through the south entrance. Oh, it looked different, but no big deal, I thought. They must have changed how you enter the library. I thought, I'll just open one of these doors and take a look around...oh, no! This was not the entrance to the library! A group of about 20 students and a professor looked up at me. The professor said, "May I help you?" My face was red, I said, "Excuse me, is this the entrance to the library?" The professor said, "You need to go around to the north side and enter that way!" I was so embarrassed. I'm sure as I closed the door, they all had a good laugh.
(This is what the library looks like today! No wonder I was lost!)
Cool, hip and trendy Vivian, once adorned with her many puka shells, came back to BYU looking like this:
A middle-aged tourist! Yes, that was me! And I interrupted a class, for heaven's sake!!! What a dork! Don't tell anyone...let's just BYU remember Vivian as cool, hip and trendy...ok?
Let's talk about something else!
Of course the reason I looked like a tourist, as I've told you before, was because I was the official youth group photographer. I always had a camera around my neck! Here are some musical programs we enjoyed. One was a lovely singer named Jenny Phillips. Please check out her website: Jenny Phillips. She was awesome and beautiful. Here she is pictured on the left with Daughter #1 and her Sweetheart, who came down from Tremonton to Salt Lake City to visit us and enjoy the musical fireside. Another was Alex Boye. He is a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and also sells CD's of his own music. He was a favorite speaker and singer of many of our youth. And lastly, Kenneth Cope came to do a musical fireside for us. He was awesome. I loved his music and he had such a great spirit about him. Check out his website: Kenneth Cope.All these artists' music is available through iTunes too. Check them out and enjoy!
No quilting pictures to share today. I'm working on a huge one and it's taking a while. No two-a-days for now!
