I met Cindy Travis, the Mayor of Stockport, when she spoke at the October Listening Post at the Kate Love Simpson Library. She talked about her now four-year fight with incurable cancer. Her story was prefaced with a remark many people make about their life – “There isn’t much to tell about my life. My life has been pretty ordinary.” Warning bells and lights flashed on in my brain when she uttered those words. False! I have yet to encounter anyone who has had an ordinary life about which there is little to tell.

The following morning, I called Mayor Travis and asked her for an interview and a tour of Stockport. She said yes, but the way she answered was also not ordinary. She said, “I am honored that you would want to interview me.” Honored – a word not much used today. She wanted me to know that my request gave her feelings of pride and pleasure.
