Up in the air

I just read a piece about perception, compassion, thoughtfulness, and a broad understanding built, over time, through local experience.  It has some of the most piquant writing I’ve ever read.  Almost every sentence contains a reversal that’s beautifully constructed and effective at engaging both heart and mind. Because of the writing, I’m posting the link here.

    One can never imagine being bored with Anand. Like you, I was heartfully and mindfully engaged. Somehow it was more than just writing. That really appeals to me and fully supports your own exhortations for the honing of the gift of writing. Thanks, Heath 😉
