"The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one's work seriously and taking one's self seriously.  The first is imperative and the second is disastrous."  (Margot Fonteyn in In God's Care, 11 December)

Yesterday David Naylor and I took the subway down to Capitol Hill where we attended all of the Library of Congress Christmas events we could.  We went to the party on the 6th floor, we attended the carol singing in The Great Hall, we went to The Librarian's Retiree Luncheon, and we attended a "meeting" in conference rooms B&C in the ITS area.  We enjoyed visiting with our retired friends, with those still working and talking to the three who will retire at the end of the month.
