How People Are Like Penguins

As a professional piano entertainer in Houston for  20+ years it struck me how much  sense of community one can build around a piano…….Up until recently many people gathered each week wherever I was performing and caught up on each others lives and activities. Friendships formed, relationships flourished.

Now that I’m working more as a motivational speaker and not playing in a piano bar,  no one sees anyone.That is, up until last week.

Thursday’s girls night out was a huge success on many levels…connecting with fab femmes that have supported my work for so many years was a special treat since I could actually sit and visit instead of having to play it again Sam.

Everyone was so delighted to see each other there were many hugs and stories exchanged…..kinda sorta like a family reunion (except everyone likes each other).

Just like penguins.
Penguins form large groups, stay socially interactive and look after each other for life. The more I mature (ahem!) the more I realize the importance of people to connect with – not just in times of sickness but to build a network of support and fun to enjoy them while we can.

Be sure to nurture your nest of birds of a feather….you never know when you’ll need a fish for dinner.
