The last week I've been asking three questions of anyone I've been privileged to spend a few minutes with. (The way I see it we can talk about the weather or we can skip all that nothingness and get to the heart of you and me.) What's the best thing in your life right now?

What's the worst thing in your life right now?

What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?

I've witnessed pauses and struggles to answer, attempts at giving easy answers and digging deep for hard-but-true answers.

Sometimes I was with more than one person and I saw how gently the questions and answers were carried, passed on and how the answers were embraced with so much compassion... a kind of modern-day circling.

And I wonder how you would answer if we were standing face to face and we were brave enough to let it all fall away.

And in the falling away, come together.
