If we were at a cocktail party, it would go something like this:
Alex meet your meditation pillow.
Meditation pillow meet Alex.
"You look familiar to me. Have we met somewhere before?"
And then we would start the list of past jobs, favorite coffee shops and potential mutual friends, in the hopes of discovering that tie that binds.
And then we would either find it and spend the next three hours at the bar, reminiscing and figuring out how to better stay in touch or we grow impatient, chalk it up to a case of "you must look like someone I know" and then graciously part ways.
To insure that this encounter ends up at reminiscing and then staying connected past the party, I just committed to (by paying for) a 5 day retreat at Spirit Rock at the end of April.
That ought to do it.
