I came across this beautiful poem on the NYC Subway today. Poignant words as we head into a graduation weekend.
He told us, with the years, you will come
to love the world.
And we sat there with our souls in our laps,
and comforted them.
Dorothea Tanning (1910-2012)
Also made me think about this article that came out Tuesday in The Atlantic about how smart phones are turning our public spaces into private ones. I’m experimenting with not looking at my iPhone in the elevator, just as a start. Crazy that even that would be a challenge.

I just read this same poem on the #3 train coming home tonight and was likewise moved by its lovely, simple message. I also enjoyed viewing the video of your remarks from the recent NextGen conference (which I was unaware of). Sure got me thinking. Many thanks for that.
