Went to a library improv session led by Jill Markgraf (@jillibrarian). The idea that “yes, and” can be the defining attitude in a reference interview is really catching on, and going to this has me really excited for AGLISS’s workshop on March 22 with the Washington Improv Theater!

It was snowing, but we got to pull over at a few lovely overlooks. We wound up taking the Cades Cove route through the valley, which had a lot of preserved buildings. Didn’t get a lot of photos of those, but the road was really fun to drive – super twisty, rather like a theme park ride.
