So, I’ve started doing this thing with groups of young people when I speak to them where I ask the group to smile for a picture. It focuses them and breaks the ice at the same time. Here the last one I did.
This is the group at the starting line at the KC half marathon. It was pretty freaking cold and we were huddled together.
Both of these reflect to me the anticipation in gathering when something is about to begin. You don’t know how it will turn out, but there is so much potential and the energy is palpable. We gather for energy and support. Whatever it is we’re about to experience, we’re going to experience it together.
