The comma is a simple mark of punctuation. It separates all that has come before from whatever is to follow. Likewise, on life’s journey, we encounter those “comma times”—some intricately planned and self-created (a sabbatical; a day of reflection; a solitary prayer); others imposed, sometimes violently or without warning, by external forces.
This book challenges the reader to be attentive to those moments. They literally give us pause. And, in those times, we are increasingly aware that life consists of multi-layered intersections—some deeply personal; some corporate, even global. As we engage these intersections and explore their interrelationship, we become more whole.
Through personal memoirs and reflections on public events, Beyond the Comma explores these intersections and offers insights to readers as they seek to navigate the waters of their own lives.
In his farewell remarks at Andrews Air Force Base, President Obama reminded us: “This is just a little pit stop. This is not a period. This is a comma in the continuing story of building America.”
