What is the purpose of a window? Logically thinking, the first thing that comes to my mind is that the purpose of a window is to bring sunlight inside for naturally lighting the indoors. Windows also allow fresh air to flow through enclosed spaces and offer an alternative exit or escape route in addition to doors. There is no doubt that without windows, indoor spaces would be very dark, stale and confined.
Yet, stepping away from this logical mindset, the purpose of a window may have a much deeper meaning than its initially thought out functions. Take a moment to open your mind and consider where I’m going with this. By providing us with a view of what lies outside the comfort that humanity has constructed, perhaps a window’s true purpose is to present opportunity. Perhaps windows exist to remind us that there is more to life than what exists within the confines of a room, a house or a building. Notice how windows show us a different way of looking at the world which can in turn change our perspective, spark imagination and allow us to remember that we are part of a much greater and more complex web of life.
This blog, A Window Into The World Game provides you with that view of opportunity, that shift in perspective and that reminder that you are part of something incredible. Writers Nicole Lorage (that’s me) and Leon Sandler will be posting weekly or biweekly articles that will serve as “windows” into the World Game. These windows will give you a glance at the amazing things that the World Game Bali has to offer, including commentaries about the conference and workshops, what to do and see in beautiful Bali and memories about past regional World Games. Taking a look through these windows, you will soon see that this could be the most significant conference for coaches of our time. But in the end, it will be up to you to get involved, take action and seize the opportunity that windows present!
