Strangers You Ought To Know

Have you ever read about someone passing away and think … omg … that person was living right here … did all those things … and … I never got to talk with him/her?

Or … how many times have you been asked, who in history would you like to hop in a time machine and visit?

I once lived next door to an older lady who fed my dog scraps from her dinner. She was nice. But, I simply saw her as a kind lady who loved dogs. OMG … It wasn’t until after she died and I read her obituary that I learned that she had taught school, lived all over the world, and had done many amazing things that I would love to experience.

Sure, I was very busy during the time that she was my neighbor. However, we did talk ... but, obviously, not about anything truly important.

Since that time, I’ve tried to notice people more, be in the moment with them, and ask more meaningful questions. And, I’ve promised myself that if I ever had the chance to meet or talk with a living legend I’d do everything I could to make it happen.

So, when, Sean Copeland, told me that he was going to get to interview Bill Cosby, I rudely asked if I could simply be in the room while he did the interview. He kindly agreed to allow me to be present.

Once again, OMG, I could have listened to them talk for hours.

Mr. Cosby is fascinating. He’s been all over the world, applauded by millions, written books, been on TV and radio, in movies and has received numerous awards and earned degrees. Dr. Bill Cosby is a national treasure with the unique ability to touch people’s hearts and make them think.
