I learned of a dear teacher’s upcoming retirement recently. I thought of a conversation with someone over the weekend when we spoke admiringly of a different teacher’s impact upon my life. I’ve been sitting with those and other teachers in my spirit. I’ve been thinking of them in my mind, talking to them and telling them how much they’ve meant to me.

As a rule, I don’t keep such secrets. I’ve told these folks before how they’ve influenced me. Sometimes I’ll even write an email or make a call when someone has passed my mind more than twice. Teachers and non-teachers, if I’ve thought of a person multiple times, I take it as a cue to connect.

Perhaps someone has passed your mind, passed your vision. Send them something. Reach out. Take the cue.
