“We are living through incredible change; it's not normal that you experience so much change and transition in a lifetime. It's never happened before. It's incredible. Each generation must find and discover its own reason for its existence, and so it really is demanding of us. Our hands are full.” - Azu Nwagbogu, Open/Ended #1
