"One" for the Holidays

Right in time for Christmas, here is the next story in Mark Miller's One from Trestle Press:

Giovanni Gelati is an optimist. I do not think I know anybody with more enthusiasm or positivity. He works hard for himself and others. He never has an unkind word about anybody, in public or private.
After reading “The Hand of God”, I feel like I understand him a little better. I can see from where his amazing outlook comes. He has discovered his God is in the details. He has an admiration and fascination for all things. With an open mind, he is ready to take on the world.
I, for one, am glad to have him in my life. His energy is contagious and he constantly inspires me. He is doing great things, one piece at a time, and I am along for the journey.
Giovanni starts off his story wondering why I would want him to be part of “One”. There is the obvious reason that there would be no “One” without him. More than that, he has a unique voice. I have read his bocce stories, read his collaboration and did one with him. He has a style that is simple and direct, like listening to an old friend. He writes in the moment and one can easily get caught up in that moment.
Why have him write his story? Simply because I wanted my friend to know I appreciate him and the things he does. I am glad to have him as part of our One World.
