so many stories…

 there are so many stories still yet to tell…
 stories about the most extraordinary of people
 people who, if you asked them, would think of themselves as not much more than ordinary…

 stories about the watering of the piano in the lobby lounge
 and the citing of donna summers a long time ago…

 stories about the pfister’s many super stars and its regulars finding home…

 stories about family reunions and lifelong friendships
 solo travel and far away places…

 stories of grief and sadness
 resilience and hope…

 stories that have filled my pages
 with their names and where they are from

 so many people and so many never-to-be-forgotten moments…

 so many beginnings that will live on 
 long after my year at the pfister has come and gone…
