Seven stories of brushes with greatness
Greatness is all around us, though it often takes hindsight to realize it. Sometimes greatness is in the people we meet—famous and obscure, outlandish and refreshingly normal, people who become central to our lives and folks who, even after the encounter, remain blank slates for the imagination. Sometimes greatness is in the moment—the confluence of time and place in which we feel ourselves, even for an instant, transformed. Greatness is in our community, our childhood, our grand mistakes and miraculous recoveries. Greatness is in our ability to get through it all and live to tell the tale.
These are our tales.
