So I have been doing interviews on this blog for a while now, but I haven’t quite gotten the procedure down yet.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of interviewing two extraordinary people, but I messed up by not saving my conversation with them.
I like to record the interview, if that is not a problem for the person, so I can just focus on the people I’m interviewing and then listen back later and make my notes and write out their answers as they were spoken.
I love these two particular people’s unique perspectives and personalities. This is why I was so bummed that I messed the whole thing up.
They were very understanding, compassionate even,
when I’d told them what happened, but I still kicked myself for not taking better care of the recording.
What was I going to do now? I wanted to share the amazing contribution this couple makes every single day, how much they care about our planet and how much compassion they have for all living things, and I didn’t know how I would best achieve this.
Then it hit me…
I was prepared to write this particular interview and post it on my blog, but fate stepped in and I was forced to alter my plans.
My 1000 Voices Speak For Compassion reveal is this.
I will be taking what I learned from our four-hour conversation and, instead of a set of interview questions, will be making my two cousins the focus of my February 20th 1000 Speak post.
Theirs is a story of hard work, dedication, and integrity.
When I thought about what compassion means to me, I realized I had two of the most compassionate people I’ve ever known right there in front of me.
I want to share their story and the difference they continuously make with the work they do for the environment and with children.
They are the best examples I can think of and I can’t wait to tell you all more about them.
This was just a sneak peek and I hope you will return on Friday to read more about them and the important work they do.
