“If we all see things differently,” she asked. “How can we ever agree on anything?”
“Our difference *is* our agreement” replied the ink-black crow. “If we choose to meet each other that way.”

Seven years ago this month, I lost my friend and mentor, Ken Morrison. He was excellence. He was challenge. He was blunt (the first lecture in his Ritual, Symbol, Myth course was called “Holy Shit!”). He was all heart. And I miss him dearly every day. Ken’s path – and subsequently my own – was deeply informed by a grad school reading of Martin Buber’s I and Thou. He once shared with me that after reading the book, “the objective world disappeared from sight, and I cried for days knowing that I had no choice but to consider and to teach about what was left: the relational processes no one else quite saw.” He spent his life committed to this mission – as an influential educator, activist and social critic, and empath. As my friend wrote: “Ken truly understood that all real living is meeting and the uncertainty that such a stance entailed. He built mutual, authentic relationships at every opportunity and was passionately dedicated to the people with whom he was in conversation. At the core of his being, Ken was about dialogue and wanted to foster it wherever and with whomever he encountered.” As Martin Buber wrote, and Ken lived, ‘We live in the currents of universal reciprocity.’” Today, I encourage you to show up, open up and engage.
