I was thinking this morning about the very first meeting I had last year with (the fabulous) Marissa Feinberg, owner of Greenspaces NYC and Loosecubes Host numero uno. I presented her with this crazy idea about getting a bunch of people together to share workspace with each other. People who had space and people who needed it. People whose backs were hurting from working at Starbucks. People who were sick of commuting. People who were seeking moments of connection and friendship to brighten the work day. People who said, “I want more out of my life and my work.”
And she was up for it.
I figured we could make a site and people could get to work. I started out trying to get more productive, and what’s happened is my life has been transformed not by all the work I’ve banged out but by the relationships I’ve made with all of you. You are open. You are passionate. You are making your own rules…and in so doing, you are making our world so so beautiful.
Yes, the search needs work. Yes, the pages could load faster. But we couldn’t ask for a better group of people to be on this adventure with.
You’ve made my life more full. My days more productive. My evenings more fun. Thank you for your generosity of spirit, your willingness to share, andyour willingness to believe that it is possible to change the way the world works.
You guys are making it happen, one day and one conversation, one shared experience at a time. We may be a small movement now, but we’re growing stronger every day. I can feel it.
