Earlier this month I spent several days in San Francisco. While there I had the opportunity to spend several hours in the Castro. There are many things that can grab a man’s attention in this neighborhood.
Particularly memorable, as I walked around, was the discovery of the Harvey Milk Civil Rights School. This is a small, elementary school dedicated to academic excellence, tolerance, diversity, and strong families. Harvey Milk made his values a priority in his everyday life.
Even now 32 years after his death, these values live on in many ways through his legacy.
While there, I also met Joseph Kramer through a training I took with the New School of Erotic Touch. He is most famous for starting the Body Electric School. Since 1982 he has made a priority in his everyday life to use touch and erotic energy in healthy, respectful ways that promote wellness and transformation.
Over time this has added up to making a very real and positive difference in the lives of over 15,000 men and many women over the years.
Like Harvey Milk, Joseph Kramer’s legacy began by making small commitments each day to take part in the things he valued. It was only over time, that the larger impact that these men are famous for emerged.
How are you making the things you value a priority part of your everyday life?
These may seem like small things now, yet over time everyday priorities add up to a legacy.
