Yesterday, I attended a funeral of a very kind, sweet human being.  My aunt Alice.

Aunt Alice lived a good life and enjoyed it very well, too.  I shall miss my Aunt very much.

But I learned something very important.  I learned just how small the world really is, afterall.

At the wake, a friend of my cousin was present.  After we were introduced, I learned that she is married to an attorney who represented my own mother many years ago.  Small world.  I also learned she was the sister of a classmate of mine in high school.  Very small world.

In life and in business, the world is very connected.  It’s a very small world.  Or, as the Greeks say, ‘Micro Cosmos’.
