Serendipity


Friday and Saturday I was away at a conference in Vancouver. Although I learned a great deal about a few key educational initiatives and am completely inspired, how I met six new friends, and how we, together, came to meet one sweet, 93 year old gentleman named Harold will stay with me forever. Initially, I attempted to share the story, here, but have since thrown away the words. The magic of happy accidents is difficult to replicate let alone emote. Instead, watch the video and/or ask me to tell you the story if you're interested. Either way, or regardless, I leave you with this: be neither too quick, nor too focused such that you walk on by the wonder that surrounds; fortunate happenstances, love and beautiful people are everywhere.

  2. Great story, Will. I have been to Harold's many times but I have never seen the man himself. I enjoyed the video.
