G'day Rosa and All

In the midst of your thoughtful commentary on McKinsey's 'seeing the light'
this caught my eye: :-)

"and/or, we might see this is an amazing opportunity for making new
friends... :-)  :-)  :-) "

In my experience attending five WOS gatherings, starting with Monterey CA
in 1998, have all led to the beginnings of ongoing fine friendships. Some
stem from 'associated' memorable activities such as 'getting there', beach
parties, forest hikes in the Aussie bush, musical evenings, walking the
labyrinth at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, toasting a new friendship
with late night traditional two martinis and Conversare in America

Wondrous gifts indeed.

Looking forward
