It remains our opinion that just having a conversation is among the most effective things one can do in our society. We have plenty of stuff… much more than enough of it. Our problems are of distribution and isolation. Not only is a more-than-the-weather exchange an enjoyable experience of sharing knowledge, furthering understanding, and connecting with someone in an honest way, it builds a better world.
We are repeatedly inundated with an abundance of kindness and openness from people of all backgrounds and dispositions. Indeed, when one actually makes the time to dig into a real verbal exchange with someone, one finds that even the most unlikely of folks share more ideas and desires than one might imagine. A respectful, enjoyable, and mutually beneficial interchange nearly always occurs.
So after some frisbee at the beach and before porching the night away playing music, we ate great food and drank absurd amounts of coffee while connecting time and again with a bunch of amazing people all over this town.
In the spirit of conversation, I will say little more for now, but invite you all to please send us a message with your thoughts, questions and ideas. We aim to make this experience not only amazing for ourselves, but something of benefit to those around us in our space, in our thoughts, and in our hearts. (Cheesy! Trite! True!)
I leave you with this conversation, in the form of a podcast, where we sat down with Tim and Chris while in Athens to discuss the apropos notion of the true cost of things. We hope you find it amusing and informative (or at least a catalyst for discussion about matters of importance).
Oh, and here are some more awesome photos that Kim took of us chattin’ with her eager, inspiring, totally awesome students!
So much intrigue!
Reading = winning.
Behold! Our future!
