Autonomy and Acceptance

This is a double-post. Not only is it a Rounding Third Podcast, but it’s also a Social Saturday post. I’ve noticed this past week it’s becoming easier, at least a little, to talk to other people, but that’s mainly because I’ve had friends with me. Nick joined me for a ten-mile run, Leo joined me for a podcast, I had a new friend from England join me for coffee on the same day I met a group of wonderful people all interested in knowing other people and experiencing life lived to its fullest. It’s about others, isn’t it?

I believe it is.

Finally, I reunited with an old friend from my army days who was able to discuss leadership, personal development, and purpose with me. It was just fantastic.

Leo Bannister, a retired soldier and current instructor at both the University of Texas – San Antonio and University of the Incarnate Word, joins me to discuss a child’s autonomy, ignorance, and the role dialogue plays in our world and our relationships.

    1. Thank you so much for joining me and for leaving comments here. It was fun. The movie was Suicide Kings and the person with the toaster was Dennis Leary. On MySpace, back in 2005 or 2006, I used him as my profile pic with the handle Captain Courage. For some reason, that feels right. Let me know next time you want to join and we’ll make it happen.
