First I will share some of the frame around my window. I am a chronic optimist – which profoundly shapes my view of the world. On the other hand I believe that we create the world we believe in – from that perspective being an optimist is in itself a contribution to a better world. Additionally, one of the most important things I’ve learned in this work is how little I know and how little I can see. I offer this reflection with the understanding that it may be such a tiny view that it is not relevant for others. (excerpt)
