I've long observed that when it comes to the people I encounter in my life there are usually three (not six!) degrees of separation. Still, I did a double take when I saw this configuration of speakers on the registration page of The Dalai Lama Global Vision Summit. I've never met Dr. Villoldo, but we have previously appeared side-by-side. Sorta.
See what I mean? My article, "For a Reason, For a Season, or For a Lifetime," appears in the issue of Unity magazine the ancient wisdom expert covers.
I once spent the day interviewing Anne Lamott who, as I've written, "is a wizard at showing us how to observe, write and live fully. What I gained from my extraordinary afternoon with the writer was a deep appreciation for her engaged, engaging soul—and for Wheat Thins, which she nibbled on throughout our interview at her home in Marin County."
As for the gentlemen directly below me in the grid of photographs, I have yet to unearth our connection, but I have no doubt it will reveal itself in the not-too-distant future.

I like to make stuff...and think about stuff.
