Doug Johnson is a well-known and respected author and lecturer/consultant for ‘new’ ed media/librarians in the 21st century.
Here is an abstract of his seminal article found in Teacher-Librarian, May 2005.
“I wish you a day of ordinary miracles.
A fresh pot of coffee you didn’t make yourself.
An unexpected phone call from an old friend.
Green stoplights on your way to work or shop.
I wish you a day of little things to rejoice in.
The fastest line at the grocery store.
A good sing along song on the radio.
Your keys right where you look.
I wish you a day of happiness and perfection.
I wish you little bite-size pieces of perfection that give you the funny feeling that God is smiling on you.” – Anonymous
