UPDATE: The follow-up blog post for this is now available at http://the7gracesofmarketing.com/2013/07/9-perspectives-on-a-garbage-heap-honouring-our-collective-truth/, Many thanks to all who contributed to this collaborative project!
I was walking nonchalantly down the street yesterday when something caught my eye as I passed by a neighbourhood ‘junk shop’. At first I just kept walking, but my feet suddenly halted, almost compelling me to turn back. I took out my Blackberry and took this shot:
To me, this picture says 1000 words…at least. So many thoughts were running through my head as I looked at it, I decided to publish a blog post about this photo on my next blogging day (Tuesday July 2nd 2013).
But then I had another thought.
What if you told me what this photo says to YOU so we can explore our perspectives together? What if we had a dialogue right here, right now, underneath this blog post? What if we each shared what this photo says to us… even if it says NOTHING at all?
Then, on Tuesday, I’ll combine your thoughts with mine, and create something that reflects our collective response to this photo. It will be a true example of the Grace of Collaboration in action.
So how about it? Will you write the next 7 Graces blog post for me (well…with me, anyway)? Use the Facebook comments. Use the WordPress comments. Share this with others and ask them to comment. But don’t go away without saying SOMETHING. You don’t need to be profound or clever. Just share your honest response.
Start talking. I’m listening.
P.S.: The blog post I put together based on all your comments is now available at http://the7gracesofmarketing.com/2013/07/9-perspectives-on-a-garbage-heap-honouring-our-collective-truth/, Many thanks to all who contributed to this collaborative project!
