Flow of thoughts

I thought of my chance to conduct a seminar at an event has been given to someone else recently. The reason that has been explained to me was that “the audience expects white face”. It surprised me, and I remembered what Colin Powell wrote in his autobiography: I am not going to let someone cripple me just because I was not given the entire field to play in. I was going to do my best in the area that’s been given me. I will show them. It occured to me, right now, all I have to show are short list of solid workplace creation projects. If I had a long list of dazzling successes, published work, no one will even talk about the option of bringing in a “white face”. Who is the hero? We all are. As long as we fulfilled our capacity, living the life given to us, in circumstances all so varied, with all we have.
