Why Don’t You Cry About It?

I have been lucky to work with people who cry. They care so much about what they’re trying to do and the people they’re trying to do it with that, sometimes, when they talk about it, they cry.

The tears aren’t always happy. But tears equal connection and passion and commitment. Where there are tears there is someone who gives a damn, and that is the best place to be if you want to do work that matters.

Today I’m grateful for the people with whom I’ve worked who cared enough to cry.
