Now, That Is Some Title. . .
With the passing of Prince Philip in April, I was thinking about titles and the many ways they changed in the course of a lifetime. He was known, of course, as a man who had many titles.
Back firmly on this side of the pond and in my not-so-royal world, evidence of titles play a role in everyday life. Most of us carry or have carried multiple titles. Other duties as assigned may be a description of tasks that are given not only in the course of a job but can and do occur at any given moment.
Many descriptions aren’t clearly defined. Flexibility is important as is adaptability among an always increasing list. On-the-job training and continuing education act as markers where schooling is ongoing. And no job summary can ever be sufficient to tell the role mothers and mother-figures play in our lives. To mothers everywhere Happy Mother’s Day. Who would ever think that one might be able to link Prince Philip to mothers? Who, indeed.
