Writing on Air

Writing on Air by Jim Paredes

Crazy, huh?

Posted on June 14, 2013 by jimparedes

I’m doing a crazy thing tomorrow. I call it Passion Night and it is the 4th time I do this.

I posted an announcement on twitter about 3 weeks ago inviting strangers to dinner. I told them to write me an email and I said would randomly choose among people who sent emails. I had two conditions: 1) they were not stalkers and 2) that I had never met them.

Well, It’s pushing through this Saturday, June 15, 2013. I have 10 guests from Manila who will fly with me to Puero Princesa tomorrow via Zest Air. We will be staying at the Aquari Suites and we will be having dinner at the La Terrasse resto. Two more will be joining us from Palawan. We are staying overnight and going home on Sunday early afternoon.

Why am I doing this? Because it is fun and amazing how we can learn from people we do not know. Discovery is a wonderful thing. I also notice that great sharing can happen when people do not know each other and so have no pre-judgments. Strangers are often friends we just haven’t been introduced to.

Will write about it. Wish me luck! Crazy, huh?
