Elwin and Joan, You beat me to it. I thought I'd get a head start on
December 2nd by pretending I was still in Manilla at World Open Space. It's
December 2nd there now, this place who adores Harrison Owen as much as we
all do around the world. Time to tip our glass to him with such
appreciation for this coffee break gift of Open Space and the guy with the
hat who brought it to us. Each year since 2009 when I first discovered
Open Space, it's been a tradition to remember and celebrate this very
special day of December 2nd - the birthday of my late father who read
Harrison's guide in Italian and then quizzed the heck out of me afterwards.
Dad knew at the source that this was something very special and I felt his
approval in pursuing this work.
So dear Harrison, may life treat you in a very special way as you have
treated us all these years - with generosity, guts, candor and such wisdom
