While on the road in the South, I passed through Amarillo, Texas for a one night pit stop. When I awoke in Amarillo, I decided it was time to do my laundry so I showed up at a local laundromat with a sack of stinky laundry and a handful of quarters. Maybe I am just an ignorant youngin’ from New York, but I had a preconceived notion about what I would leave the laundromat with on that morning….nothing but a clean bag of clothes. Instead, I crossed paths with the types of people that I hoped I would meet when I first started this podcast – everyday folks who are passionate, inspiring and using their own energy to hopefully contribute to something larger than themselves.
It was also a sharp reminder to strike up conversations with strangers because we never know what we might learn from each other when we emerge from the shadow of our own reclusiveness. Although, the occasional silence can still be a good thing (see: our first episode).
