I didn’t take many photos from my time at the conference, but here are a few
that I managed to snap. (After all, I was busy learning!)
I managed to snap a photo of a sign for the Rural Libraries Conference and the sign right next to it: GVSU’s Master of Social Work hooding ceremony. Why? Well, if I had stayed in my previous career, I would’ve been pursuing a MSW. It was an interesting moment when I saw the two signs side by side…made me think of The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
