Dear Open Space People,

Hopefully the timing for this question is not inappropriate given how 
Nature is creating open space all over in rather forceful ways. But 
maybe this would be a useful diversion from watching the path of Irma.

I've really enjoyed using the fifth principle and believe it is very 
helpful especially helping people realize that they are not confined to 
meeting and scheduling meetings in the allocated time slots, and to 
extend the boundaries of Open Space where they belong - whenever, wherever!

I've only just seen that there are actually two phrasings. I've been 
using Anna Caroline Türk's phrasing which I think fits the rest better.

*Wherever it happens is the right place.*

But the original email 
from Harrison Owen phrases it:

*Wherever it is, is the right place.*

I'm thinking maybe there is deeper poetry in Harrison's phrasing and 
that I will revert to that in the future. But I do love how Anna put it.

What do you all use for the fifth principle?

     Thank you and Warm Regards!
