Bob Sauvé led such a compelling ‘tour’ of a painting during my recent visit to the National Gallery in Ottawa — he knew everything about St Jerome in Penitence — that I had to ask about his story. A school principal, educator and faculty member at U of Ottawa, Sauvé always loved galleries and art. When retirement approached he eagerly dove into his demonstrated interest and became a volunteer docent.

CareerCycles tip from Oct. 26 interview with Gregg Brown:
Gregg Brown urged listeners to tune into their own clues. “What revs you up? What gets you excited? When you’re going about your day-to-day work and you read an article in a newspaper [about a career area], does it make you feel excited? Or not? Where’s that drive for you?” And then, when you notice those positive clues, Brown advised, “Know when to say ‘yes.'”
