It’s always stimulating to discuss and debate about politics, business and world events, but people’s personal stories have great dimension, texture and soul. No matter how many of us there are in the world, we share more than meets the eye. Our differences also expand each of our horizons.
I can meet people anywhere, including at the supermarket. That’s where I met Katherine last week. She was in the checkout line in front of us and joked about my Blackberry addiction after she heard my husband firmly ask me to put the darn thing away. Turns out Katherine is a substance abuse counselor, which was pretty funny in light of my Blackberry usage.
We spoke last night and I learned that Katherine is in a theatre group, has two grown sons and loves restaurants with atmosphere. We made a date to have brunch a week from Sunday.
I’m sure I’ll ask Katherine lots more questions.
