Go back and think of times when someone said something to you that changed you. Like a tuning fork, the advice had perfect pitch–and you knew it.
I told Pete–the high school basketball coach–that my journalism class would need access to the gym to decorate for the Christmas Ball.
“Cheri, it’s better to ask than to tell,” Pete said outside my classroom.
That statement changed me forever.
You may have had this type of experience, too.
Last week, dafna–a thoughtful soul whom I have never met but whose comments I relish–suggested that I consider shooting pictures out of focus every now and then.
dafna, because of you, I will enroll in a photography course this summer.
dafna, I’ll try to shoot out of focus, every now and then.
Thank-you for offering yourself to me.
You did make a palpable difference in my life.
