Friendship in Creativity

The ultimate touchstone of friendship is not improvement, neither of the other nor of the self: the ultimate touchstone is witness, the privilege of having been seen by someone and the equal privilege of being granted the sight of the essence of another, to have walked with them and to have believed in them, and sometimes just to have accompanied them for however brief a span, on a journey impossible to accomplish alone.

Thank you all, friends, for sharing a journey impossible to accomplish alone – celebrating the unique splendour of being open to and generating new ideas, being open to and making new decisions and being open to and taking new actions to make the world a better place and to make your place in the world better too.

Looking forward to our new journey, next year, when we again make noise and peace, provide opportunity and insight together, collectively, during World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15-21, 2014.
