I spent the weekend seeing three performances of a play my fourth grade daughter was in at The College School. The play was called “The Magic in Giving” and was based a parable-like children’s book by Jeff Brumbeau calledThe Quiltmaker’s Gift. If you are not familiar with the book, it’s one that you’ll definitely want to put on the list to read to your kids. My obvious biases aside, I can’t remember when I’ve had a more fun and thoughtful time at the theater. It’s always good to consider the value we place on our own giving, something I struggle with every time someone tells me that I give way too much information and content away. There’s ultimately a place for capitalizing on our intellectual property, but, for me, there’s always been a magic in giving away useful information to help others.
