Contemplative and philosophical reactions and contributions:
When you think of this project, what comes to mind for you? Are you willing to share with me an example of a time in your life when you have “carried weight”? Was it a privilege to be important, meaningful and have influence? Was it a burden? Was it both? Were you aware of the power you possessed and the effects it had? Was it difficult to gauge? How did it feel? Did you grow by carrying more weight? Did you grow by lightening your load? What balance worked for you and why?
