Y'know Mark, our philosophies are remarkably similar. Ever since I realized the transience of the world, I decided to just try and make the going easier for everybody. And I always thought about how everybody has their own little life with little experiences, just like me. I never heard the circle analogy though; I find that to be a really tangible way to describe how people's lives are.
As for your tour idea, I think that'd be really wonderful. If you come to Vancouver I'll be sure to be there!
