Afternoon clouds on a beautiful day:
Revised my LinkedIn profile so it reflects reality six years after I closed Bosserman & Associates and started doing independent research and writing.
Repurposed the Greener Acres Value Network group on Hylo which hadn’t been touched in seven years. I’m curious to see if it attracts anyone.
Attended Tony Budak’s weekly “Raising the Value of Learning” Zoom call. As usual, he convened an amazingly diverse cast of characters—very bright, very committed—a joy to be around. In an unexpected turn of events, we setup a group on Slack by the same name that we can use to communicate among ourselves on the topics important to each of us in between the weekly Zoom calls. Most of all EVERYONE JOINED. Now, if we can just USE IT!
Tonight I wish to speak upon the oneness of the world of humanity. This is one of the important subjects of the present period. If the oneness of the human world were established, all the differences which separate mankind would be eradicated. Strife and warfare would cease, and the world of humanity would find repose. Universal peace would be promoted, and the East and West would be conjoined in a strong bond. All men would be sheltered beneath one tabernacle. Native lands would become one; races and religions would be unified. The people of the world would live together in harmony, and their well-being would be assured. 1
