Let’s have a dinner party

Let’s have a dinner party and invite all the interesting people we know.

Let’s be charmed, challenged and inspired.
Let’s allow ourselves to dream.
Let’s talk to someone we’ve never met.
Let’s listen.
Let’s learn something we wanted to learn.
Let’s learn something we didn’t know we wanted to learn.
Let’s teach.
Let’s play.
Let’s play music.
Let’s play words.
Let’s hear something unexpected.
Let’s be unexpected.
Let’s have an argument.
Let’s not.
Let’s discuss.
Let’s watch.
Let’s be a part of something different.
Let’s be different.
Let’s have a dinner party with our mums, our dads, our best friends, our colleagues, our bosses, our unknown friends, our dreamed friends, our dreams.
Let’s talk.
Let’s grow.
Let’s grow old and young and be just the same and entirely different.
Let’s not be the same again.

Let’s have a dinner party and invite all the interesting people we don’t know.
