Emory has served as a touchstone for Ben F. Johnson III 65C since he was a boy, long before he became chair of the university’s Board of Trustees in 2000. These days he is more likely to be found at nearby deli The General Muir than the Administration Building, but he’s never very far away. Story
One of my favorite places in the world is my living room in winter, where there’s usually a fire burning in the fireplace. I don’t know what it is about a fire that I find so beguiling, but there is something about the glow, the warmth, and the crackle that lures me to sit for hours—reading, drinking coffee (like now) or tea or wine, working (like now), or just daydreaming, staring at the flames as though they’re spinning a story and I might miss the ending if I don’t keep watch.
