It says “let’s have lunch”, “can we meet for dinner?” or “come talk to our breakfast group” – more often than anything else, that unexpected conversation about the unexpected subject that matters most.
Though I don’t know the sport, I expect it’s a lot like fencing – thrust and parry.
Or maybe, other kind of fencing, about boundaries, about neighbours – why we need both to get along.
Brilliant Mark! Hit the nail on the head with me, 58 yrs., now working in the Gig Economy with no intention of getting a f/t employee type j.o.b. (I don’t even think employers in Calgary want 50+ yr olds any longer in their work force). They prefer to take younger people, pay them less, train them up in the corporate mould). Look forward to meeting 1-on-1 for a coffee, MW, Calgary, AB
