Asked a smart executive yesterday if anyone has asked her to explain the meaning of life.
She said no.
Then I asked if she suspected her young Son would eventually ask.
She said yes.
So I asked, “What will you say?”
After listening to her for a minute, maybe two, she finally finished sharing her answer.
(this is surprising longer than it seems)
Pretenting to be a young child (or teenager) I replied, “Huh?”
Then I shared my answer, “To love and be loved.”
Point is this: there are things we know to be crucial, most of which we ignore.
That’s what I write about.
It’s not always pretty, or easy to read.
But it’s never a lie.
