5: Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the huge task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said "Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird. Anne Lamott

And now, back to reading event reports from the European staff. My favorite line so far comes from the Rabat, Morocco trip, the report was compiled by John, a former Lewisham police detective..

I declined the gentleman’s offer."
ETA: Look, buddy, just because the printer is in my cube doesn't mean that you can hang out in the entrance of my cube and read every single page of the print-out. Just take it and go. Go. Now. Shoo.
