I was out and about in Houston today.
The picture above was taken today and conveys the fact it was quite sunny.
I was thinking as I walked and drove around about the need to take everybody as individual, while at the same time not forgetting that everyone is connected.
These two imperatives can draw upon different internal resources, and can highlight competing strains of thought about how to view the world.
Also, it was so bright and sunny as I traveled around Houston today. Individual things stand in such clear relief when so clearly lit.
Still–I was not swayed from my thoughts. Being under the light of the sun was a unifying aspect of the things I saw.
In the year ahead please consider finding the internal resources and flexibility of mind to accept the people you encounter as individuals and without preconceived notions, while at the same time grasping that what happens to one person happens to all people.
