The thing that most impressed me about the person is the total immersion in the moment and the acceptance that where we are in the conversation is the right place. I was glad Meredith reminded me of him and his story.

I've read the first part of the book on my way over to Italy -- it was wonderful company and really got me in the holiday spirit.

I heard Bill Strickland speak last year and was on the edge of my seat. Not only was he an inspiring speaker but the way he approached the development of the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild holds many lessons for not for profits and for profits. I'm sure the book will be a wonderful read. Great choice for an Acts of Kindness Award Valeria!

@Rich -- I am glad I saw that on your blog and found out more about the initiative.

@Carr -- yup, when I met him, he was interacting with people very casually. "He generates generous natural energy with others and as a result great things come to him, naturally." Great leaders also inspire that kind of activism and passion in you just by proximity. You said it so well.
