I'm a lifelong learner with unending curiosity living in rural Iowa on a farm with husband, 2 kids, 2 cats, and a big dog. I have affiliations with all three state universities, and miss university-town life. It's beautiful on the farm, wonderful view, trees, great front porch where we like to sit and watch rain storms. I run the local library in our town of 800. There's a lot more to it than anyone who has not run a library might imagine, including myself before I took over the position. I think that can be true of most jobs, however.
