I had the pleasure this past weekend (June 5th) of attending the Mid Atlantic Air Museum's WW2 Airshow in Reading, PA. This event really brought back home to me the importance and happiness of being able to see and meet in-person numerous people of a like mind who were smiling, happy and enjoying being with other people again in an event type venue.
One of the things that really stuck me was the impact and delight of the positive unplanned encounter that events like these foster. For me, that was meeting a gentleman named Ray Firmani (99 years young) and a former WW2 B-17 bomber pilot who flew 25 missions over Europe. After getting a chance to speak with him about his experiences, his positive physical and mental energy, exuberance and the joy for life (given the challenges and harrowing experiences he went through) really moved me.
This August I will be attending our Ascend21 OATUG conference in Hollywood Florida and hoping to have as many positive unplanned encounters as I can, like the one I had with Ray.
See You Soon,
