Relax and Connect

By Geoffrey Geddes

Relax your shield hand, Captain Ego, for just a moment – just long enough to take a quick breath and exchange an authentic pleasantry. You might meet a pregnant Canadian with a soothing smile who recharges your familial batteries. You might share some truth with a cohort of earnest, fearful, compassionate, differently striped addicts who all take your number so they can stay connected to the human you always knew was struggling to punch through your defensive crust. You might meet the old guard of a new venture who further ignite your unexpectedly fearless fire.

It was a good day today.
