  1. These truly encapsulate what we think, and why we should feel compelled to give others the space to think them out loud as well. I stay energized by these sketchings. Thank you so very much Brad. Blessings, V

  2. Brad,
    I so enjoyed your marvelous sketches that so brilliantly captured those wonderful words of wisdom.
    I shared them with my son, who wanted to know when more were forth coming! I am a former mediator; who has plans of returning SOON!

  3. Thanks for sharing your impressive talent with all of us. Your choices of whom to sketch and what they have said are inspirational. I especially liked the Primo Levi quote as he is not a person oft-quoted nor that well known but his writings deserve to be known better. I just read If this is a Man and Truce and am still reeling from their devastating eloquence and poignancy.

    • thanks so much, michael. the sketches are easy….the real talent is coming up with such meaningful words. I was living in Italy when Levi died, and he’ll always ha s a special place in my heart.

    • I’m back again for your next installment and loved all the pieces. The Tom Waits quote “as long as they are entertained” reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend when I first started mediating and I was talking about a case. The work must be a constant source of entertainment, he replied. I was annoyed by the partial truth he hit upon. After doing many cases now, I usually don’t share them with others who are not mediators. That seems to cut down on the entertainment value.

  4. Thank you, these are uniquely inspiring that I am going to share with people who care about and work toward Peace and Love, and even those who don’t. Peace & Love.

  5. I once took a sketch class while living in Germany. I thought they’d start with a bowl of fruit but no, week after week new and interesting humans. It was so hard! Hands … forget about it. What did my instructor say about my work? “Komisch”. What would he say about yours? “Genial”. Thanks for sharing Brad and keep them coming!
