Walt Disney stated “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” For me, this day begins a new journey down a new path.
I completed packing up my office on Main Street for the move to our new downtown office at CityWalk. I must say, I had lots of stuff that I had accumulated over the last two years. I have been with Central Dallas Ministries, our sister organization, for 11 years so I have become quite accustomed to moving. However, it is something about this move that breeds the “curiosity” as stated by Mr. Disney.
I am so excited to start next week walking through the doors of 511 N. Akard. I can remember two years ago walking through the door with John Greenan and looking at the remnants of pigeon waste and feeling the cold darkness of the stairwells. (On a side note, I remember feeling like there were many beady eyes peering at me. I would later find out it was the huge rats that were residents of the basement.)
Even though there is still ongoing construction, the building boasts such a refreshing newness, not only inside but outside. I am so blessed to be a part of opening new doors and to begin my journey of doing new things in my new office.
