Boston and Near-War Myths

BoldThe weekend of June 17 was a meeting of the Global Network in N. Andover, MA, north of Boston. It was wonderful to see all kinds of friends from 20 years of activism in the field, and to make new friends as well. But the best part of the weekend was staying in Cambridge with friends Matt and Kelly on Saturday, and spending time with their delightful daughter Anna, who taught me how to play the piano, how to be a pirate and search for buried treasure in the form of purple snails in the potty, and how to color Tinkerbelle's friends in the appropriate magical shades.

The theatre of war
is by both accident and design
wherever you happen to be

I flew out to Boston with Bill Sulzman, got picked up by an old Colorado Springs friend Chris, held a vigil at Raytheon headquarters in N. Andover, and then spent all day Saturday in plenary sessions and keynotes. Below, I've embedded Part 1 of a workshop we did - Part 2 is here, and Part 3 is here.

The photo of you and Anna is priceless!

Godspeed, Loring, always and ever, and thank you, thank you for all you do and have done these 20 years. Here's to 20 more and 20 more after that! And to much accomplished and transformed as a result.
