There is so much for us to learn from one another around the world. Our lives take different routes. Our paths are charted down different roads. Our destinies still are woven into some universal truths that we share as WOMEN and as LEADERS in our unique spans of influence.
I continue to be touched by the mystery of how our stories are drawn to one another through technology. The Internet has allowed us to meet in ways we never imagined would be possible --- to get a glimpse of our DIFFERENCES and SAMENESS all in one across the world --- to experience and connect as women in the distance, finding the common ground upon which we walk.
This beautiful woman in red, Naseem, is a wife, mother, a mid-wife, a musician, costume designer, teacher, speaks multiple languages, and is a member of the award-winning world band, DEBU. She lives in Indonesia. She also is my niece. Through Facebook, we reconnected across the distance. A small miracle for which we are most Grateful. A blessing.
Meeting Together Across the World...
Coming up very soon, there is another opportunity for us to meet through technology.
