Marcia Singer, my guest this week on KOWS Wise Woman Storytime returned to the show to share another story and her reflections on what happened. The implications and insights told here can be gifts to all of us who everyday are traversing an increasingly deepening political, social, racial and economic divide.
While this story took place 13 years ago it is as relevant today as it was then. It’s a story about how during a time when Marcia was vulnerable, alone and isolated, she became dependent upon total strangers – people she might have said she had absolutely nothing in common with; people that under other circumstances she might have judged, feared and kept away from. Her encounter with them however opened her eyes and heart to deep lessons about how assumptions, misunderstandings and prejudices separate, divide and keep us prisoners in a disconnected, closed minded and small world. There are lessons here for all of us. Listen below to Angels in Disguise…….
