At my first and last solo post-MAPP.01 dinner with Chris, before leaving Philadelphia for home, after 11 months away.
Chris: So what will you do with what you have learnt in MAPP when you return to Malaysia?
Me: I have all these ideas ...
Chris: (in a Chris-like matter-of-fact tone) You are only a dreamer if you don't do anything with your ideas. So do them.
( proceed to spout a string of ideas for interventions, projects, writing, etc enthusiastically, and then stopped self-consciously)
Oops! I am such a dreamer.
PostScript: Thanks Chris for your deep & profound impact on the making of the person I have become.
