My friend Scheherazade visited yesterday. She’s one of those friends who is very good for the soul. When I was in Maine, and she went away or wanted to move away, I always tried to convince her to stay there. For me more than for her, of course – as is clearly evidenced by the fact that I’m now encouraging her to move to Cambridge. When she was here we were trying to figure out what her perfect job title would be. It’s something like business or intellectual augmentation, I suspect. Or, since she and I were talking all New-Agey for a while, maybe it’s crystallization. She’s extremely unique in that she is a bit of a cognitive magnifying glass. She can take concepts (of her own or of others) and transform them from a passing haze into really beautiful, concrete concepts, images, and actions. It’s a rare and amazing gift that is applicable across disciplines. I’m very excited that she’s now considering applying that talent in the entrepreneurial space.
