“Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.”

- Dr. Albert Schweitzer 

Something happens when we focus our humble beam of light on another living being and give them our complete and rapt attention, looking at them with eyes that see their goodness, their possibility, their loveliness, and their humanity. Something wakes up. You can see it in the way their body moves. You can see it on their face and in their eyes. Something lights up.
You know what that means? It means something marvelous. It means we are luminous.
