New Windchime in the Courtyard

WindchimeThe Katy Library on Franz Road has a beautiful, new addition.  Take a stroll in the back courtyard to hear the new windchime, placed in memory of Mr. A. T. Clapp.  Mr. Clapp owned the property where the library now sits, and the courtyard reflects his memory through the new windchime as well as violets growing from cuttings of his own plants.  Thank you to Dorothy Bing, one of his former neighbors, for donating these.

Change, Change, Change

Switch: How to Change Things When Change is HardThere are some absolutes in life.  One big one is: “Change is inevitable.”  I’ve just started reading Chip & Dan Heath’s latest book Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard.  It’s more of a story-driven narrative about how everyday people work together to make dramatic changes in their businesses and communities.
