Continuing to make my way through ‘Tribe of Mentors’, I’ve particularly enjoyed the entries by Jerzy and Anelia Gregorek – two poets and champion body-builders.
Weight-lifting creative writers – not where I expected to find wisdom, and I found myself pleasantly surprised. Later I chided myself that I should even have been surprised. That I was gave an example of unconscious bias and unhelpful stereotyping.
I aspire to be free of thoughtless judgement and appreciate everyone on their merits alone. That’s a longer journey than most of us realise.
Kindly, keep going.
