My mission is creating better conversations to spread understanding and compassion.

Great conversation requires true listening, which is nearly a lost art that requires active practice. The key to its preservation lies in cultivating our natural, genuine curiosity. That curiosity will lead to understanding, and then to compassion.

Huzzah! Thank you for putting these out. They are quite enjoyable. I got to the white-on-orange and my brain started tingling. Maybe it was the lack of coffee but initially I could not place it. I suspect maybe there’s some deep-seated psychological repression too. The theme of the essay(?) was clear to me without being explicit. Stephen King would be proud. Keep on,

Wait a minute… ‘That was the first time I effectively closed an entire golf course.’ …the ‘first time’ implies other stories are on deck. :)

I have so many thoughts about so many parts of all of this! Great email.

The idea of repetition and stasis are a fool’s errand. We are changed from one day to the next, one moment, one breath. Acknowledge that you are moving and the question then is speed not whether, and Plato says not to discourage yourself over that. Thank you for a Sunday morning reflection.
