Mr Pirsig has passed but I hope this forum will live on. May he and his memory rest in peace.
There is hope.
On tuesday, the same day that I read about the sad news I attended a lecture by the mayor of one of our country’s finest university.
It was about Quality.
He said, ”Everyone here in this room, know about quality but no one can tell exactly what it is”.
He has also installed a small museum of art at the university.
Later he pointed how measure system and numbers always fail at the end when you try to complete the forms.
Numbers as quality are quite seductive at the board and in the news but we shall never stop trusting the power of words, dialogue and common agreements.
He pointed at the work of the Swedish royal academy. The members at that board are not using numbers and measures or polls to find out the next winner of the Nobel prize. They are meeting nearly every thursday of the year and talk and talk to each other until they finally find an agreement.
Keep on with the good talk friends
