so many stories…

there are so many stories still yet to tell…

stories about the watering of the piano in the lobby lounge
and the citing of donna summer a long time ago

stories about the pfister’s many super stars and its regulars finding home

stories about family reunions and lifelong friendships,
solo travel and far away places

stories of resilience and hope
and joy and sadness 

stories about the ones who greet you and the ones behind the scenes,
the ones who take your bags and the ones who check you in
the ones behind a desk and the ones in the kitchen

stories about the kindness of strangers and their daily acts of service
the ones who pamper, serve you coffee and mix your drinks
the ones who clean your room and the ones who keep you safe

stories of art and inspiration,
of chai and belonging

stories that I looked forward to at the start of every day
stories that shaped and brought me so much joy along the way

stories of a virus that changed our day-to-day
stories of memories that will stay…

to all of my friends at the pfister, from my heart to yours
for a year i will never forget
thank you
