Footprints in the Windsm # 883

You’ve been in this kind of meeting. People saying ordinary things. Nothing much happening. —And then—something clicks. Maybe an offhand remark not noticed by the person speaking. Someone else picks up on it. You are sparked.

It’s not the people. It was the convergence of these people, this time, these thoughts. Something no one carried into the meeting carries you out.

You met.

Truly. And all those other “meetings” deserve the quotes, for they are pale by comparison.

What if we could meet this way on purpose?

We can. We just have to design our assemblings so we have opportunities to meet. Meet as humans with good heads…& good hearts. Meet to cause good.

Please pass it on.
