I was there the fateful day when Maria and David first met over oatmeal. It was a total set-up. Katie Jo and crew called a meeting to "discuss philanthropy". MMM-hmmmmm. For some reason, Maria brought me to this morning meeting. As soon as we walked into the restaurant, David's eyes popped out of his head. I didn't exist since 10,000% of David's focus was on Maria. If I recall, David spoke about 500-750 words per minute and was wiping perspiration from his forehead. Clearly, he was totally overtaken by Maria's beautiful eyes and sense of being. The conversation turned a bit to some more sensitive topics at which time David's energy turned from love to compassion and nurture. To see this man fill the room with love was awe inspiring. It was the best oatmeal on the face of the planet!
We left the meeting and I think I said something like, "Well, he clearly likes you."
As I never met anyone like David (I think the same can be said by many of us), I didn't know what to think. Is Maria into him? Is she not? Well, that question was answered pretty quickly.
David's energy was amazing. He's a star amongst us all now and will burn bright to bring us all back to the love, compassion, and the nurturing energy he shared with us all.
