The kindness of thought

Tonight, we were invited to dinner with new friends. It was amazing, sparkling company and conversation, full of points of view that brought up topics that required honesty and listening to multiple points of view.

How refreshing!

We also didn’t sit down to eat until after 9 p.m. a full two hours after the invitation to arrive had passed. I have never been to anything like this evening: where the conversation was the main course and the delicious meal the accompaniment.

No sheeple here!

It is being sharply brought home to me how fortunate we are to live where we can express our nuances and not fear imprisonment. In a way, such thoughts are very new to our collective human conscience.

How kind that we live in such an era.
