This week's Awakin Call guest: 'Meredith May: Why Mercy Matters

Reflection questions: Our guest this week wrote a book about a remarkable pair of men who were slated to be enemies in war and yet became bound together in a profound act of mercy. They met each other serendipitously two decades later on the other side of the world. Can you recall an act of compassion or mercy in your life that transformed a seeming opponent into a soul that became mysteriously bonded together with you in the universe?

    This was a special call for so many reasons
    1. Being a big fan of w&c, this was my first time listening to Richard Whittaker conduct an interview and it was lovely - there was a relaxed, gentle pace to this conversation that walked down some interesting side-lanes...
    2. I first heard about Meredith May from reading about her work with bees in Richard's w&c interview and that's a lovely conversation with some great nuggets of insight. This conversation on her encounter with the lives of two men who would have fulfilled conventional criteria for enemies but instead became soul-friends who've anchored each other through the worst life can offer is breath-taking to listen to as well...
    3. Two lovely segues ensued - Meredith talked about why women need a place of their own to study and relate to, re her work at Mill's.
    4. Anne talked about Jane Baldwin's work with the Kara women of Ethiopia (a story I'd heard an echo of before) but it was beautiful to hear Anne describe this work and the places the exhibition she curated is going, in her passionate voice! May the exhibition come to south India. Not so far from Seoul, we are!

    Thank you, all involved, for this call :)
