I wish this would happen to me when standing at a bus stop. That's all I have to say about that.

The Empathic Civilisation

My blogging has slowed down. I just had an amazing two month adventure in Los Angeles, and I came to my season finale with a bad case of appendicitis that resulted in my first surgery. So, I don't have much to say right now. I'm a little tired and doing my best to move slow.

I will leave you with this. A friend just sent me this talk from Jeremy Rifkin: "Bestselling author, political adviser and social and ethical prophet Jeremy Rifkin investigates the evolution of empathy and the profound ways that it has shaped our development and our society"

This is one of the most true, all-encompassing and inspiring talks about the state of humankind. Please watch. It's brilliant, and it eloquently sums up everything (and more) I've noticed about the world during my travels and adult life.

Here's the short 10 minute version, if you don't have time for the whole thing:

This is the long version, highly recommended.
