We had a delightful extended conversation in which we dug deeper into old issues and explored new ones. Highlights of the conversation included:
- The importance of changing the conversation – and in particular de-politicizing conversations;
- How reconnecting with people and having conversations with our neighbors can make a difference;
- Recognizing how easy it is, as we get caught up in the rush of current events, to forget that we are living in real time.
