What does it mean to be a harmonizer? You can do it with art, or with governance. For me, it comes naturally with words, ideas, relationships, and I sense it in the stars, the forest, on the train, in a café, in the rain.  Wherever there is movement and interaction, we can sense the forces at play, and engage in a gentle way. Sensing the music, the tone, the pace, we can join in, connect the dots, ease the tension, or tighten the slack. It is simpler than fight or flight- but most of us react to situations. With an open mind and heart, we can respond, connect and harmonise.  It is an art, but still not taught in school!  To harmonize is to inspire and be inspired.
