This Week in Philadelphia (TWIP) for 1-4

Happy New Year. And happy "Dia de los Reyes," known in English as "Three Kings Day," which celebrates the arrival of the Three Wise Men. By the by, this is the famous Twelfth Day of Christmas. I mention this because it is one of my favorite unknown holidays, kind of like Michaelmas, something we don't pay any attention to in the 21st Century.

I also mention it because it is the Feast of the Epiphany, a day of revealed truth, a day when you finally see something that was always there right in front of you but never noticed before. I've talked about epiphanies before, and I think one of the marvelous things about networking is the opportunity it brings for epiphanies about yourself, the people around you, and the things taking place in the world.

Go seek your epiphany this week!
