A final summer shorty…or a Dog Day Barker…no offense to the canines…
What makes up a team of players?
What comprises a group of friends?
What encompasses a well-staffed business engagement?
And what does the typical family look like? I ask those questions and end with the family, because in some ways, the family—as a unit of calibration—is the microcosm or macrocosm (depends on your point of view) against which many, if not all, nuclear/extended clusters of humans are measured against.
And what makes up any of the above?
Is it all homogenous? Are we all the same? Is everyone a star? Are the competition all losers?
What is the truth? And more importantly, what can we learn to leverage?
Think on this:
A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold.
– Ogden Nash
And there you have it. And may I add, pay close attention to the animals and the common cold—they are way more prevalent than we’d like to think, and do in fact make us all unique…
