Dino DiBernardinis went on a rant about “humanizing”, this week. Not really a rant, just a reminder that we should do that. I complimented him, saying I shared his view. He replied that he was thinking about it because of what I’ve been writing. Yay, great minds, yada yada.
Then, again, on Thursday, I was given a chance to sit with folks and help them humanize a group they hadn’t been thinking much about…medical cannabis patients, and were in turn able to GIVE understanding about the people they serve directly…The homeless.
I see individuals, even groups, striving for that conversation. Good job, individuals and groups!
I like that my show attracts a certain kind of mind…An empathic, open, questing crowd, mostly. Of course, I’m a fairly skeptical and cautious thinker…But I do like to find the boundaries of my acceptance, and streeeetch them a little bit.
Keep your mind flexible, and your heart light. It’s a long way to where we’re going.
