connection to antique book with old spectacles

We usually discuss connection in the context of the present, but today my guest, Connection Messenger* Annette Petrick shares an experience of being with her engineer fiancé when he found himself drawn to a very old book at an auction. Turns out, it connected him not only to the book's writer 200 years ago, but also to his own love of lyrical writing. Use the audio player above to listen to this 90-second show. Annette gives a little back story below.


Have you ever been to an auction?  It’s easy to get carried away; especially when you see something you “just can’t live without.”  I have rarely seen that kind of fervor from my practical, conservative partner.  So to see him turn passionate about bidding his way to ownership was truly a unique happening.

So what caught his eye?  Tools?  An old car?  Collectibles from his childhood?

Listen in to hear what it was, and what effect it had.
