What do you think of all this? You’re pretty new to our village, y’know, I’ve been here all my life, but you might still have the eyes of a newcomer … if you ever did at all. Is that your style, to look at things with fresh eyes, “the beginner’s mind” as the Buddhists say – is that you? Or do you come in with your years under your belt, solid conclusions about life based on solid experiences, lived and learned, right? Maybe that’s you. I can’t tell. I mean, I can talk and talk, y’know, spout my opinions and share my stories and, well, you know, but I can only guess at you, I can’t tell for sure.
So, what do you make of us here in our village? It’s your village now.
