Congratulations to colleagues at the University of West Florida:
In the article, Garner said he happened upon the artifact site quite by accident: Driving along, he saw disturbed dirt at a construction site, in an area he’d long thought ‘might’ be the location of the Luna settlement. “Might.” He wasn’t certain, but he had a feeling about it.
Something inside him told him to stop and look. He followed that instinct.
Professional archaeologists can go for weeks and months at a dig site, and find nothing — and then, one day, quite by happenstance, come across a wonderful source of artifacts!
When I read about others who ‘dig’ for information for a living having this kind of success, I feel encouraged and cheered for days on end! Examples like these reinforce my understanding that we have to be patient and persistent — and willing to follow that inner voice that says, out of nowhere, ‘stop and look here.’
Or, ‘tell my story’.
