Seen through the lens of CC value 44: Sharing what you believe and believing in what you share...
Up until this point, I have written little about our gatherings—the book readings, community potlucks, and musical performances that have been the heart of our tour.
It’s been far easier to talk about my own learning, growth, and experience than to reflect on the ways that we might, in turn, be affecting others. Though I can feel in my gut that I am making a positive impact in the world through this journey and these sharings, I don’t know—at least not in exact, precise terms-- what that impact is. Part of me is afraid to even express my hope that what I am doing is making a difference, for fear that I might be judged as grandiose, or naïve to think that something as simple as gathering 20 people in a room and sharing music, food, and stories could change the world.
