If youâ€™ve read this blog for any length of timeâ€¦well, first of all, thank you. I am grateful that youâ€™re willing to hang in and explore dialogue with me.
Second, you know that I periodically go missing when the demands of the book and the full-time job keep me away. The last couple of weeksâ€”in which Iâ€™ve prepared for speaking engagements, launched a simple e-newsletter for subscribers to this blog, etc.â€”have become one of those â€œperiodicallys.â€ I offer my apologies, even as I try to accept that this appears to be the way my life goes.
However, I did write something for the blogâ€”indirectlyâ€”and I want to share it with you. The Public Conversations Project, which has designed and facilitated some of the most remarkable dialogues of the past 20-plus years, published my article on slowing down the rush to decision making in the wake of the Newtown shootings. In a way, itâ€™s a complement to another article I posted here a while back: â€œA Place for Silence in the Face of Horror.â€ So please take a look at the Public Conversations Project post. Iâ€™d love to hear what you think.
